 Ingredients List

  • -----------------------------------DOUGH-----------------------------------
  • 2 1/4 c All-purpose flour
  • 1/4 c Plus
  • 3 tb Butter
  • Salt
  • 1 Egg yolk


4 oz Mozzarella
3 oz Cooked ham
2 Eggs
1/2 c Grated Parmesan cheese
Pinch of nutmeg
2 tb Chopped parsley
2 Eggs, beaten
Oil for frying

Sift the flour into a mound, make a well in the center and add the butter,
cut into pieces, a pinch of salt and an egg yolk. Mix together, kneading
and gradually adding sufficient water to obtain a smooth elastic dough.
Shape into a ball, cover and leave to stand in a cool place for at least
1/2 hour. Roll out, folding the dough over on to itself a few times, as if
making flaky pastry, then roll out into a thin sheet. Cut into circles
about 3 inches in diameter. Dice the Mozzarella, cut the ham into pieces
and place in a bowl with the 2 whole eggs, grated Parmesan, pinch of nutmeg
and chopped parsley. Mix well, then spoon a little into the center of each
circle. Brush the edges with beaten egg, fold over and press gently. Heat
plenty of oil in a skillet. When hot, dip the crescents in beaten egg and
then fry, a few at a time, until golden brown and puffed up. Drain well on
paper towles and serve piping hot.
