INGREDIENTS

250 g all-purpose flour
35 g butter
1 egg yolk
20 g caster sugar
1 pinch of salt
90 ml white wine
90 ml grappa
1 ts baking powder
vanilla powder to taste (or vanilla extract)

Pour out the flour onto a flat work surface. Make a hole in the center and add the other ingredients in the center, except for the wine and grappa. Gradually add the wine and grappa as you begin to knead the dough.

Using your hands or an electric mixer, knead the dough until it is smooth, then cover in plastic wrap and let rest for 15 minutes.

Then, divide the dough into pieces and roll out the dough using a rolling pin or pasta machine to a thinner setting. Use a knife or pasta cutter to cut out stripes (about 6×5 cm) or whatever shape you prefer.

Fry the dough in peanut oil. Once golden, remove the fritters using a slotted spoon and place them on parchment paper.

Dust the fritters with icing sugar. The chiacchiere can be served immediately or stored for a couple of days.
