Fattigmann

3 egg yolks

1/4 teaspoon crushed cardamom
or 1 teaspoon brandy
1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cup flour

Beat egg yolks until light. Add sugar and cream, beat well. Blend in cardamom or brandy. Add flour and mix well to make a smooth dough. Roll out to 1/16" thickness. Cut in strips about 1 1/2" wide. Cut diagonally at 4" intervals. Make 2" slit crosswise in centre and slip one end through slit, to make a "bow". Deep fry in hot deep fat (350 F) until delicately browned, about 1-1/2 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
