Decorating tips:

For an extra touch of elegance, you can sprinkle a little powdered sugar on top of the frosted baked goods or even add a few colorful sprinkles immediately after frosting for a festive look. If you're serving them at a more sophisticated event, consider drizzling them with a chocolate or caramel ganache for a decadent touch.

Ingredients:

  • For the dough:
    • 4 medium eggs (total weight: 200g, without shell)
    • 250 ml of water
    • 180g flour
    • 80g unsalted butter
    • 1 tablespoon of sugar
    • A pinch of salt
  • For the icing:
    • 150 g caster sugar
    • 3-4 tablespoons of water

Preparation:

  1. Prepare the dough:
    • In a saucepan, bring the water, butter, sugar and a pinch of salt to a boil. Add the flour all at once and stir vigorously. Cook, stirring constantly, until the dough forms a ball and a white film forms on the bottom of the pan, about 2-3 minutes.
    • Transfer the batter to a mixing bowl and stir to cool slightly. Gradually add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition until the batter is smooth and thick.
  2. Shaping the pastries:
    • Cut the parchment paper into squares. Fill a piping bag fitted with a large star tip with the dough. Arrange ring shapes on the parchment squares.
  3. Fry the pastries:
    • Heat the oil in a deep fryer or large saucepan to about 175°C (347°F). Carefully place the dough on the parchment paper in the oil, parchment side up. After a few seconds, remove the paper and continue to fry until each side is golden brown, flipping once one side is completely cooked.
    • Remove the pastries and drain them on paper towels to remove excess oil.
  4. Glaze and serve:
    • Mix icing sugar with water to make the glaze. Brush or drizzle the glaze over hot pastries.
    • You can optionally dust them with additional powdered sugar instead of using the icing.

Enjoy these classic ice cream rings, a simple yet satisfying treat that brings a touch of sweetness to any occasion!
