Struffoli ( Honey Balls)

8 cups of Flour
10 eggs
2 tsp yeast
Pinch of salt and pepper
72 oz vegetable oil
32 oz honey
pignoli nuts

Put oil in a deep pot and set aside to fry the
Mix all other ingredients together and knead dough into a ball. If the dough is too tough add an extra egg, If it is too soft add a little more flour. DO NOT ADD WATER!
Pinch off dough and roll into Ĺ in balls. Be sure to flour them so they donít stick together.
Heat oil until its very hot and drop dough balls in one handful at a time. They will rise to the top of the pot, I toss them around a little bit with a slotted spoon until they are a little browned all the way around. Drain them on paper towel. When all of the struffoli are fried and drained of oil, Heat the honey until just warm in a pot and toss handfuls of the fried Struffoli in the warm honey until coated with honey..I do this for each handful batch for about 2-3 minutes, giving the honey a little bit of time to soak in..remove them from the honey with a slotted spoon and pile on a serving plate..after the whole batch is done and piled on a plate, sprinkle them with pignoli nuts and some red sugar sprinkles.
