Angel wings recipe – step by step directions:
Using a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. Set them aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk eggs together with sour cream and vanilla extract.
Stir liquid ingredients into dry ingredients.
Knead the dough with your hands knead the dough for 5-10 minutes to create an even consistency. If it is too sticky, you may need to add a little more flour.
Wrap in cling wrap and leave the dough in the fridge to rest for 30-60 minutes to an hour.
Sprinkle a little more flour on the table and roll out the cooled dough as thin as possible, adding a bit of flour so it does not stick to the table. If the dough sticks to the table, rather roll it out on baking paper. You can use a pasta machine to get the dough thin, if you like.
Cut into stripes (about 10 cm long and 2 cm wide).
Cut a small slit in the middle of each stripe and interweave each angel wing through the hole in the middle and place on a flat tray
Preheat a skillet with oil to 350F (180C).
Start frying the Angel wings in hot oil until they get light golden brown. They will puff up a little. Fry 3-4 at a time, taking care not to overcrowd the pan. The dough cooks fast, less than one minute each (about 45 seconds). Use a fork or a spoon to flip them half way through. As soon as the dough changes color to a very light brown, remove them from the oil with tongs.
Drain the Angel wings on kitchen paper.
Arrange on a large platter and dust liberally with confectioner’s sugar.
Angel wings are best served right away.
