RECIPE OF THE MONTH: CARNIVAL CHIACCHERE

posted by Home In Italy on February 8th, 2013

It is time to wear your mask and go to the most fancy and fun party in town: Carnival is here!

In Italy there are several  kinds of pancakes: the most famous are the chiacchere (it means to chat): simple, crunchy, in one word, delicious!

Ingredients:
250gr white flour
1 whole egg
50gr sugar, 1 pinch salt
50gr butter
1 dose vanilla, 3 tbs Marsala
Powdered sugar, oil to fry

Combine flour, sugar and vanilla, than pour all over a surface.
Make a hole in the middle and pour egg, soft butter pieces and marsala in. Knead well. Roll dough with a rolling-pin in a very thin sheet. Cut 6cm x 10cm rectangles, in the middle make tree cuts. In a medium pan warm abundant oil, when hot, fry few chiacchere per time. Sprinkle with sieved powdered sugar.

Enjoy!
