One of my favorite kiddush dishes is kichel. Its easy to buy them but I always thought it would be fun to make them. So I did. I found this great recipe that I will share with you.
This recipe is adapted from the book "The World of Jewish Cooking" by Gil Marks.
3 large eggs
4-5 tbsp granulated sugar, divided
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup all purpose flour
Beat eggs in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy for 5-10 minutes. Add 1tbsp sugar, salt and oil and continue beating mixture until thick for about 10 minutes. Gradually beat in the flour until the mixture is smooth.
Drop batter by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto parchment lined baking sheets. Sprinkle kichlich with 2-4 tablespoons of sugar , to cover.
Bake kichlich until puffed and golden brown for 20-25 minutes.
Remove pans from oven and with a spatula transfer cookies fro pan to a cooling rack. Allow to completely cool before serving.
Can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for a week or in freezer bags in the freezer for up to three months.
