These are related to the American doughnut, being fried in deep fat.

3 Eggs 1 cup Sugar 1 teaspoon Salt 1/4 cup Cream.

1/2 cup Butter.

1 teaspoon Cardamom.

2 teaspoons Baking Powder 31/2 cups Flour.

Blend softened butter and sugar, then stir in the eggs and cream. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together, then add to first mixture. This should make a soft dough, yet stiff enough to roll. Roll out to about 1/4 inch thickness and cut into diamond shapes. Make a slit in the center and pull one point through the slit. Cook in deep fat until brown. Danes like to use a long knitting needle to turn these and to lift them from the fat. A special cutter for cutting these can be purchased in many stores, called a Klejner Cutter or a Fattigman Cutter. (Pronounced Kleiner)
