Recipe for Babcia’s Chrusciki (Polish Angel Wings4 or Faworki)
Chruściki (called also faworki, angel wings) are a traditional sweet crisp pastry made out of dough that has been shaped into thin twisted ribbons, deep-fried and sprinkled with powdered sugar.
Chruściki, chrusty, and faworki are the plural forms of the words chruścik, chrust, and faworek, respectively.
The Polish word “faworki” was the name reserved for colourful ribbons attached to either female or male clothing, especially ribbons given to medieval knights by their ladies. The Polish word “chrust” means “dry branches broken off trees” or “brushwood”.
