2 C. Flour

4 Eggs

½ C. Strega Liqueur

1 tsp. Baking Soda

4 Tbsp. Oil

Vanilla to taste

2 C. Crisco solid or oil

½ Honey ( may need a little more)

Mix all together. (If you want this recipe sweeter add 50 grams of sugar, I do not). Work like spaghetti until you have a soft dough. Dust with flour and roll out with rolling pin to about ¼ inch thickness. Dust, and cut diagonally like fettuccine, then cut each into pieces the size of a peanut. Shake off excess flour by putting the mall pieces in a colander.

In a deep fryer or 12 inch pot with high sides add 2 cups Crisco. The flour will make the oil boil up. Check temperature by dropping in one dough. All all pieces of dough, stir around. In another large pot heat honey until it is boiling all over. When honey is boiling it will become thick. Line a baking pan or dish with heavy wax paper or oil the dish. Take the dough out of the hot oil with slotted spoon. Place in the boiling honey and stir around for about 15 minutes. Spoon in lines on your prepared pan (this pan must be large enough to accommodate all of the dough) or in circles if using a round dish. Cut to serve
