Directions:
Stir in egg yolks and sugar together until smooth. Add cream and lemon rind and stir in flavoring.

Sift flour and salt together and add to egg-yolk mixture, blending thoroughly. Dough will be very stiff. Knead lightly on floured board. Chill.

Heat fat to 380.

Roll dough to about 1/8 inch thick and cut into strips 4 inches long by 1 inch wide. Cut a gash about 1 inch long toward one end of each strip. Pull other end through to form a knot.

Fry cookies until golden, turning once. This will take only about 1 1/2 minutes.

Drain on absorbent paper. Dust with icing sugar.

Grannie cut this recipe out of a newspaper. There are colored comics on the backside of it. Cute! She also wrote at the top of the page.... "Use the noodle maker!" I'm guessing this is because the batter is so stiff.
