Immediately with the memory I came back at the age of 5/6 years old when I watched my grandmother that made them. In those times “poor” this delight was always associated with some festivities marked in red on the calendar. I remember my grandmother telling me that the recipe had been passed down from her grandmother, so we're talking about something that comes from 1850 about, time when the street had not seen cars, but only carriages and horses.

Fried cresciole can be prepared in two versions: sweet and savory.

Place the flour on your work surface, the same way with which you prepare homemade pasta. Break the eggs, add the 2 tablespoons sugar, the good oil (says the old recipe), a little anise, a pinch of salt and beat with a fork mix everything.

With your hands mix the flour slowly to the liquid compound, until you get a good smooth dough, smooth and soft as that of the pizza.

At this point, divide the dough into smaller balls. Roll it out with a rolling pin into circles (as it is done with the pizza) thin and dip them in hot oil for about three minutes, then flip them on the other side.

Once they have reached the right degree of browning, drain them on a paper towel and add salt or sugar depending on the version you have chosen.
