How to make sugar paper clips
Pour the flour, butter or lard into the mixer and mix.
Also add the egg and slowly add the yeast dissolved in the milk with the sugar.
Add a pinch of salt and knead until the mixture is soft and non-sticky.
Work the dough a little on the work surface, form a ball and let it rise for at least 2 hours or until doubled.
Take some pieces from the dough, shape into balls and leave to rise again until doubled.
Fry the paper clips in hot oil until golden brown.
Dip the still hot paper clips in granulated sugar.
