Ausukes ("little ears" - Lithuanian pastries) 2 eggs 3 tbsp. sweet cream (I substituted whole milk) 1 tbsp. sugar About 1 3/4 cups pastry flour (I used all-purpose)  Beat eggs until light and fluffy. Add sugar and cream. Add enough flour to make a dough which can be rolled very thin. Cut into diamond shapes. Slash the center of each diamond, twist one end through the hole to form a knot. Fry in hot fat until lightly browned. Drain on absorbent paper. Dust with powdered sugar.
