  • Peanut or cotton seed oil
  • 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry
  • 1/2 cup powder sugar


  • Thaw out your puff pastry in the refrigerator over night.
  • Heat oil to 350 degrees in a deep sided pan.
  • Open your sheet of puff pastry onto your counter.
  • Using a pizza cutter cut the sheet into thirds then cut the strips into thirds the other way, so you end up with 6 pieces of puff pastry dough.
  • Place a few pieces of the pastry into the oil and flip them when they get golden brown.
  • Once both sides are golden brown place them onto a plate lined with paper towels.
  • Top with lots of powder sugar.
