  • 450 g ( 1 lb ) All-purpose flour

  • 40 g ( 1 1/2 oz ) Granulated white sugar

  • 1 pinch Salt

  • 40 g ( 1 1/2 oz ) Butter at room temperature

  • 2 Eggs

  • Lemon Zest from 1 lemon

  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence

  • 300 ml ( 10 oz )Water

  • Light oil vegetable/sunflower

  • Nutella

  • Icing Sugar Powdered Sugar


  • Use a standing mixer. Mix the flour, sugar and salt together.

  • Add the lemon zest, butter cut into small chunks and eggs.

  • Turn the mixer on a low speed and add the water in a steady stream until the dough clumps together.

  • Knead the dough for 5 minutes until it is elastic and smooth.

  • Cover the bowl with a cloth and leave it to sit for at least one hour.

  • Roll out the dough on a floured surface until it is about 1/8 in thick.

  • Cut the dough into rectangles, approximately 10 cm ( 4″) by 7 cm. (2 3/4″ )

  • Add 1/2 tsp of Nutella to one half of the rectangle, then fold the other half of the dough on top of it and close the opening  firmly around the edges.

  • Add enough oil to a large pot to allow the crostoli to float.  Heat the oil and once hot, drop the crostoli in a few at a time.  Turn them over to allow them to brown on both sides.  The frying will only take a few minutes.

  • Take the crostoli out of the oil with a slotted spoon and drain them on kitchen paper.

  • Sprinkle the crostoli with icing sugar before serving.
