“Carnevale” is approaching! Here we are with a classical Italian recipe 😉


  • 1 lb All Purpose Flour
  • 1 and 1/3 sticks Unsalted Butter
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • Canola Oil
  • Salt to taste


Combine flour, salt and melted butter in a large bowl.

Add, one by one, the eggs, mixing well to obtain an homogeneous dough.

Let stand the Crostoli dough for about one hour covered with kitchen cloth.

Divide and shape the dough to form spheres as big as half egg.

Flatten each dough ball with the palm of your hand or with a rolling pin to form a very thin rectangle.

Heat the oil in a large skillet. Lay each dough rectangle in the hot oil and fry until golden, flipping them twice.

Lay the cooked Italian Crostoli on absorbent paper towels to get rid of the oil in excess. Spread with abundant granulated or confectioners sugar. Serve at room temperature.


Enjoy with friends!
