1 cup sugar, 1 cup milk,
2 eggs beaten fine as silk,
Pinch of Salt and nutmeg, or lemon will do,
Baking powder, teaspoons two.
Now lightly stir the flour in,
Cups times two, then roll it thin.
Cut in diamonds, twists or rings,
Drop with care the doughy things.
Into hot fat that swiftly swells
Evenly the spongy cells.
Watch with care the time for turning,
Fry them brown, just short of burning.
Roll in sugar, serve when cool,
Test one, obey the good cook's rule.
Enjoy chilly Thanksgiving morn,
For all you have, give thanks, be glad,
Remember not when times were bad.
Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
