Kichel is a popular Jewish and sweet cracker or cookie commonly made with egg and sugar rolled out flat and cut into large diamond shapes. They can be many shapes, including rounded and deep-fried with a dent in the center to hold jam
4 eggs + 2 yolks
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
3 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
Beat eggs and yolks with the sugar very well.
Add oil and beat again.
Add baking powder and beat a little longer, then lastly add the flour.
Roll out a small amount at a time, they must be very thin.
Prick with a fork, then brush with oil and sprinkle with sugar.
Cut into diamond or circular shapes (your preference).
Grease a grilling tray very well with oil, place the kichel on these and bake in a hot oven, about 210C (425F) till golden brown, approximately 10 minutes.
Some pieces burn but they are the best👍.
