Sweet Fried Pastries
A family favourite sweet pastry treat!
2 cups plain flour
1 tablespoon sugar
grated zest of ½ lemon or orange
pinch baking powder
Mix all ingredients together except vanilla sugar. Roll out flat. Thin out dough into strips and cut into small rectangles. Fry in plenty vegetable/peanut oil or ghee/coconut oil (for a healthier option). Remove from pan once puffed up and golden brown. Sprinkle with vanilla sugar.
