Kroštule are golden-yellow sweet snacks that people prepare from simple ingredients always present in their kitchens.
The simple dough made from eggs, flour, sugar, the grated peel of local lemons or oranges and butter is then rolled into layers which is then cut into strips. Before being fried kroštule are formed into the desired shape, which most often includes twisting the dough into a knot, then scoring and folding, shaping into ribbons and even flowers, and then fried in hot oil.
The secret of their taste is in the small glass of aromatic homemade Maraschino, lemon liqueur or brandy added to the dough, and for a special treat, there is icing sugar as the final detail. The alcohol is not added for the aroma but in order that during the frying the kroštule imbue less oil and remain a light but filling snack.
