Strufoli II
December 13, 2010

This recipe is almost identical to my grandmother's recipe brought with her from Naples, Italy. The only difference is that she added an extra egg, and 2 extra tsp. of baking powder. They come out lighter and less dense. You do not have to roll them into balls. Just roll into a rope, cut into pieces and fry in hot oil. To solve the problem with the honey being too thin to hold everything together, my grandmother always heated the honey with sugar. If using a large bottle of honey, use 1 cup of sugar and heat on the stove till bubbly. Then toss the strufoli into the hot honey, remove with slotted buttered spoon, and begin mounding onto a platter with the buttered spoon or, if you hands can take the heat, buttered hands. They will hold together nicely into a nice mound.
