  1. Combine flour, egg, baking powder, powdered sugar, and vanilla to make a moist but not sticky dough.
  2. Flatten teaspoon-sized balls of dough on the back of a fork (preferably with rounded tines) and roll off, forming small snail-shell-like curls.
  3. Deep fry in hot oil (~350°F/180°C), six at a time, until golden brown.
  4. Roll in more powdered sugar while still hot to coat.

  • When deep frying, be careful not to splash hot oil on yourself.
