Lithuanian Fried Cookies

6 egg yolks
6 tablespoons dairy sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
Dash salt
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons flour

Beat egg yolks, sour cream, vanilla, lemon peel, and salt together until well mixed. Add 1 1/4 cups flour, stirring to form a soft dough. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon flour on pastry cloth or other surface. Turn dough out onto floured surface. Sprinkle remaining flour over surface.
Pat and roll dough to form a 16- x 15-inch square. Let stand a few minutes before cutting. Make 8 cuts (2-inches apart) across 16-inch sides. Make 5 cuts across the 15-inch side. You will have 42 (2- x 3-inch) rectangles. Cut these each diagonally to make 84 triangles. Make a slit in the center of the widest end; pull the other end through. In deep fryer, cook 3 or 4 at a time, turning once, until desired browness is reached (about 2 minutes).
Remove from oil and drain on absorbent paper. Repeat until all cookies are cooked.
Makes about 84
