Great recipe, not too time consuming, I used a pasta machine to roll out the dough and cut in strips, then cut smaller with a knife, which made everything go very quickly. Tastes great!!!! Thanks for your recipe. 5 stars

This recipe is similar to my families old recipe for strufoli we use softened butter instead of oil and we make a lot for everyone we know, which is why we only make it once a year.I like your smaller version its easier to whip up,Just a tip when making your balls we roll out long strips and cut them with a butter knife,(kids love to help roll them)they puff up into balls anyway,lay them out in large trays and let them dry for a few hours before frying makes it a lot easier.Deep fryer helps too, Thanks for keeping Stufoli alive! 5 stars

To Cookie Baker in PA, thanks so much for your variation on this recipe. I followed your family recipe with a few variations. The simple syrup I used is honey. I must have done something wrong because snipping of the end of each little piece (after boiling it) didn't make any difference in the taste, texture, or shape significantly. For 35 years I've struggled with a recipe from Italy given to me by someone who purposely didn't give me the entire recipe. Now my Strufoli is whole! Thanks again and Merry Christmas. 5 stars

A little different than our family takes several different steps. After dough is mixed it is rolled in a strip and cut into gnocchi type pieces...first it is put in boiling water until it surfaces, once out of that is is snipped on one end and at that point deep fried...once this is done it is glazed in simple syrup, which is on the bottom of a pot large enough to hold all the cookies, while over light heat it is shuffled, so the cookies rotate from top to bottom,you continue to do this until the sugar has crytalized and coated the cookies...takes a little more time but very much worth it....enjoy 5 stars
