In Italian, “frappe”, pronounced “FRA-pay”, are fried biscuits.
They are made of flour, fat, egg yolks, egg, sugar, salt, and white wine.
You make a dough of the above, roll it out, cut into shapes and deep-fry until golden brown.
You then drain the biscuits, and dust them with icing sugar.
The biscuits are served particularly at Carnival time, particularly on “giovedì grasso” (“Fat Thursday”), the start of Carnival.
