Directions

Making the dough

In a mixing combine all the liquid ingredients and mix

Add the 2 cups of flour and mix with a wooden spoon

Slowly add the remaining flour while mixing with mixer,allowing the dough to absorb it

Knead until elastic and smooth dough is formed

Transfer onto lightly floured work surface and knead 1-2 minutes

Place the dough into a large greased bowl, cover with plastic and allow to rest – double in size

While the dough is rising prepare the custard filling

In a saucepan heat the milk until bubbles are formed,DO NOT boil




Using a whisker ,mix the egg, sugar and sift in the flour and cornstarch

Slowly add the hot milk to the egg mixture and stir to combine

Then pour that mixture back to saucepan to cook over medium heat, until it thickens

Be sure to mix it while cooking ( use a whisker for better results)

Remove from the heat and continue mixing until it’s smooth and creamy

Add vanilla and cognac if desired

Set aside to cool down , covered with a plastic film ( custard tends to dry quickly )

Making the ponchiks

Prepare a greased tray and set aside

Transfer the dough on oiled work surface,gently fold and remove the air from the dough

Make equal size balls , bigger than walnut size

With your fingertips tap into circle shape

Place some custard ,about 1 tsp, in the center and pinch the side toward the center , forming a sack shape

Be sure to stick the tips well to prevent the custard from leaking

Then place it on the surface and tap to flatten into round shape

Heat the oil to 375° F
