Black Pepper Rings Recipe
- 12 eggs
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 6 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 2 tablespoons coarsely ground black pepper
- 3 tablespoons baking powder
step 1: Bring a large pot of water to boil over medium-high heat. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
step 2: In a large bowl, beat eggs. Stir in melted butter and oil. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, salt, pepper and baking powder.
step 3: Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the egg mixture. Mix until dough pulls together. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into an 8 inch long cylinder. Bend each cylinder into a ring shape and pinch ends together. With a sharp knife, score each ring around its outside edge.
step 4: Drop rings two at a time into boiling water and boil for 1 minute. Remove rings from water and place on lightly greased cookie sheets.
step 5: Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, until golden brown.
