    Portzelky/Porzelchen German New Years Cookies!

    Portzelky or Porzelchen (High-German) (New Years Cookies)

    These are great cookies. I look forward to New Years every year for these. They are very rich and I loved them fried to a really crispy texture. The pronunciation for these would be parceltche.

    Ingredients

    1 Pkg yeast
    3 Cups water
    3 Cups milk
    1/2 Cups sugar
    1 tsp. salt
    1 TBSP. butter
    4 eggs, beaten
    2 - 3 Cups raisins
    Enough flour to make a thick dough



    1. Dissolve 1 tsp. sugar in 1/2 cup of warm water. Sprinkle yeast on water and let stand
    for 10 minutes.
    2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the yeast.
    3. Stir in enough flour to make a thick batter.
    4. Let rise until double in bulk.
    5. Drop by spoonfuls into hot, deep fat and fry until golden brown.
    6. Cool and sprinkle with icing sugar.


    P.S. This recipe is a family one that came over from the Old Country via Russia. You can find similar recipes in many of the Mennonite cook books, usually the diferences are replacing/adding dates for the raisins.

    My forefathers were from Prussia, moved to Russia during the Mennonite exodus from Germany. From Russia, they traveled to the U.S. via Canada.

    Ya' mean ya' never heard of the "Germans from Russia", Njolakoski???? Travel to MN, ND, and KS, and you'll find many of them.
