iTwixie New Year’s Cookie Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, lemon peel, vanilla and salt. Add eggs and 2 cups flour.  Mix well. Turn onto a floured surface and knead in remaining flour (dough will be soft). With a floured knife or scissors, cut into 20 pieces. With hands, roll each piece into pencil shapes. Cut “pencils” into 1/2-in. pieces and lay them over each other into an “x” or “knot” shape.
  2. Choose one of these cookies and place a quarter into the dough so you cannot see it.  Whoever gets this “lucky” cookie will have a lucky year!
  3. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 350 degrees.
  4. Fry pieces, a few at a time, for 2 minutes per side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Place in a large bowl.
  5. Heat honey or icing and then drizzle over cookies.
  6. With a slotted spoon, spoon cookies onto a serving platter. Decorate with candy sprinkles. Cool completely.
Now for the fun part — who got the lucky cookie?  Have a Lucky New Year!  Cheers!!
