TWD : Mrs. Vogel's Scherben


This week is was Tanna who choose the recipe and it's something I guess you can find with different names in every corner of the world. In Italy we eat them during Carnival along with other fried sweets. In every town they have a different name (and shape sometimes) in Roma they are called frappe and I can't tell you enough how well they were welcomed ! My husband kept saying:' This is the last one !'. Until they were gone.
The recipe is very simple (and luckily doesn't yield a big number of scherben or frappe !) , I didn't add all the liquid it called for and substituted it with sweet wine, and used my pasta rolling machine to make the dough extra thin.
I'd like to thank Tanna for this fun and delicious choice !!
Please visit her for the recipe and the blogroll for more versions (even sin-less oven ones !)

I skipped this one but seeing your picture makes me want to try it! Using a pasta machine on the dough was a great idea! :)

You added sweet wine - what a great idea! I agree that I'm glad it didn't make very many. We couldn't stop eating them wither.

Teanna DiMicco said...

Yay! I am so glad your husband loved these! I was kind of hoping they would be like zeppole, but then I loved them either way! Thank you for frying along with me this week!

The best thing about Carnevale is these frappe!

Laura said...

A Venezia li chiamiamo galani. Mia nonna li faceva buonissimi, io ho provato e non sono gli stessi, per cui mi tengo alle frittelle per carnevale.

Subbing with sweet wine sounds incredibly good!! Beautiful job.

Antonella said...

Ecco, per fortuna sto mangiando solo insalatine, tra un po' di nuovo abbuffate, e di fritti...

Oooh, the sweet wine idea sounds good. So these are called frappe in Italian - they are totally new to me!

Wow-your scherben really look great!

These look great! What a good idea to use sweet wine in them. Maybe next time I'll make frappe instead of Scherben!

Creative to add the wine. There is another cookie that has red wine in it. Cresent shaped.

These look tasty.
