Traditional Italian Carnival Delights Chiacchiere
Chiacchiere DI Carnevale, the delicious fried puff pastry dusted with icing sugar, is one of the symbolic sweets of the Carnival days, spread throughout Italy. The recipe here is the original Chicchiere recipe handed down from my family.
100gr. Melted butter
Pinch of salt
50 gr. Sugar
½ glass of White Wine
And frying oil
First, the first thing starts kneading by putting the flour in a big tray, making a hole in the middle of the flour, and adding all the ingredients inside.
Mix them well until the ingredients are well blended.
Cover the dough with baking paper and rest for about an hour.
Then roll the dough out until it is skinned and cut into small pieces, as shown in the picture.
After you have cut them, deep fry them until golden.
Let them cool.
Once cool, dust them with powdered sugar.
If you prefer the chiacchere not fried, you can bake them in the oven.
Buon Appetito 😊
