Who doesn't love the fair? Common, you know you do. I bet you can conjure up the feelings of excitement just by recalling that moment in time when the ferris-wheel comes into sight on the drive into the fair grounds. Everybody loves the fair, which is why it's a great party theme when your guest list includes people from all generations - family reunions, neighborhood get togethers and birthday parties.
Phyllis Hoffman Celebrate magazine featured favorite fair foods this month and she even had the recipe for one of the newest fair food sensation, Deep-Fried Butter. I wanted to share the recipe with you because serving Deep-Fried Butter is the kind of thing that will keep guest talking about your party long after they have recovered from the fun, excitement and calorie consumption.
Deep-Fried Butter (makes 2 dozen)
1 lbs butter softened
1/2 C confectioner's sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Vegetable oil for frying
1 1/2 (16.3 oz) cans of refrigerated biscuits (12 biscuits)
Garnish: Confectioner's sugar
In a medium bowl, combine butter, confectioner's sugar and cinnamon. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until well combined. Cover and freeze for 1 hour. Using a 1 tsp cookie scoop, scoop butter mixture into balls and place on a baking sheet; freeze for 1 hour. In a deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 350 degrees. Split each biscuit in half horizontally. On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece of biscuit dough into a 4-inch square. Place 2 butter balls in the center of each square. Fold dough over to enclose butter balls, and pinch to seal. Fry biscuits in hot oil for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towel and garnish with confectioner's sugar.
