Snowflake Cookies

Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? Not everyone gets snow this time of year but you can enjoy snowflakes, snowflake cookies that is! These look so pretty on a plate and taste wonderful.

3 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon Watkins vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 to 2 cups cups all-purpose flour
Vegetable oil
Confectionery or icing sugar

Mix eggs, vanilla, 2 tablespoons oil, the baking powder and salt in large bowl with spoon. Gradually stir in enough flour to make a very stiff dough. Turn onto lightly floured surface. Knead 5 minutes.

Heat oil (at least 1 inch deep) in Dutch oven to 375o. Roll half of dough at a time as thin as possible on generously floured surface, turning dough frequently to prevent sticking. Dough will bounce back; continue rolling until it stays stretched out.

Cut dough into 3-inch squares, hexagons or circles, using a pastry wheel, knife or cookie cutter. Fold pieces into fourths. Cut random designs into edges. Open folded dough. Cut all pieces before starting to fry, placing them on lightly floured surface until ready to cook.

Fry 2 or 3 opened dough pieces at a time about 30 seconds or until light brown. Turn quickly and fry about 30 seconds or until light brown on other side. Drain on paper towels. Cool completely. Sift icing sugar over cookies just before serving.
