Are you looking for a delicious cookie to share with family and friends over the holidays? Try this popular Israeli treat, called kichlach, made of fried dough dusted with powdered sugar.
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 2 tbs. sugar
- 1 cup sifted flour
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 4 tbs. poppy seeds (optional)
Beat eggs until light, then beat in oil, sugar, flour and salt. Beat until very smooth. Stir in poppy seeds, if you desire. Drop by the teaspoon onto a greased baking sheet, leaving about 3 inches between each (they spread and puff while baking). Bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit (170 degrees Celsius) for 15 minutes or until browned on the edges. Makes approximately 36 cookies.
