Recipe for Twigs


1/2 cup milk
2 eggs; beaten
2 tablespoon rum, gin or vodka
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour; sifted
1 (up to 3 cups)
1 fat; for frying
1 confectioner's sugar
1 cinnamon


Combine milk, eggs, liquor, sugar and salt in a large bowl. MIx well. Gradually add flour, enough to make a stiff dough. Turn out on a floured board and knead until smooth. Roll out thinly and cut into approximately 36 5-by-1-inch strips. Make a lengthwise slit down the center of each strip, allowing 1 inch on each end uncut. Put one end of the dough through the slit to form a sort of loop. Deep-fry in hot fat (375 deg. F. on a frying thermometer), about 10 at a time, until golden. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain. To serve, sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and cinnamon. Makes about 3 doz.

NOTES: These cookies take their name, khvorost, from the Russian word for : firewood kindling - twigs or branches - which they somewhat : resemble.
