Every woman must have time for herself, especially married women. We sometimes call it "Me Time". This is the time when we relax, enjoy and think only of ourselves. I happen to think that this is really essential because we need to love ourselves so we can love fully in return. "Me Time" for me is reading a good book without any interruptions and having a cup of coffee or cocoa on the side with a cookie to nibble on. This is where my crunchy pilipit comes into play.
On one occasion, my husband and my big baby went off to a nearby mall to give me space. I happily seek the book I wanted so much to finish reading, made myself a cup of coffee and took a couple of crunchy pilipit I made a day before. I felt the impulse of taking a picture first (hence the picture), then propped my feet up, placed a pillow on my back and started reading. What a glorious day! Well I only had simple joys. How 'bout you? Do you occasionally give yourself "Me Time"? If not, then I suggest you should. :)
Melted butter is optional because the Pilipit Recipe is ok without it. I sometimes had to add butter if I make them with one of my sisters in mind. Pilipit with a little butter is easier to bite into.
You can also use your hand here like I did because the pilipit ball of dough is only a little sticky.
For me, the secret to making a really nice pilipit shape is to continue rolling/twisting both ends in opposite direction until the tips are the only ones left untwisted.
|It may be challenging at first but twisting gets easier as you finish the last of your pilipit dough. So keep your patience in check. Who knows? Your new twisting skill may come in handy in other breads and pastries you'll make in the future. :)|
Overcrowding may result to lowering the oil's temperature allowing your pilipit to absorb a lot of oil, and you don't want that.
If you have confectioner's sugar, use it instead of white granulated sugar I used here. Unfortunately, I seldom keep powdered sugar in the house so I had to use what's always available. There's not much of a difference really, it's only the longer time to dissolve sugar in water and the occasional sugar crystals you see in your pilipit which become more visible once sugar coating dries.
