Grandma's Fattigmann

2 eggs
1 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons heavy cream
pinch of crushed cardamom or a few drops of brandy
1/2 teaspoons salt
1 3/4 cups flour
powdered sugar

Beat eggs lightly. Add sugar and cream, beat well. Blend in cardamom or brandy and salt. Add flour and mix well to make a smooth dough. Roll out to 1/16" thickness. Cut into 2 1/2" by 1 1/2 " rectangles. Make a slit crosswise in the center 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 min. Drain on paper towels. Cool and shake in a plastic bag with powdered sugar.
