Boortsog

Fruits, Desserts, and Other Sweet Foods

Boortsog
Ingredients:
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
3 Tablespoons butter
2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups vegetable oil for frying
Preparation:
1. Mix sugar, salt, and butter with several tablespoons boiling water, and mix well until the sugar and salt are dissolved, the butter, too.
2. Mix in most of the flour and knead for ten minutes or more, adding more flour as needed, until the dough is soft and smooth, and has no air bubbles.
3. Roll the dough out until close to one inch thick, and cut into two-inch squares. Cut an 'X' in each one about halfway but not all the way through the dough, then deep fry until golden and set aside on paper towels.
4. Cut a slice in each one, stuff it with some bysaglag or a slice of meat and then eat it is ready to be eaten.
