I visited Rothenburg in 2006; it's a marvelous, medieval walled-city in southern Germany located in the corridor known as "the Romantic Road" (the area of the Rhein and Tauber Rivers dotted with many spectacular Castles)

I took one bite and it was all over. it is mandatory to eat this in rothenberg. this shop is known for it. the pasty chef is sworn not to give the recipe away. it is of course a family recipe.

however, i got the reciepe from one of my friend's grandmother. i yet to make it. i do however, need to find the round shape tongs to shape it.

Rothenburg Schneeballen (Snowballs)

1 c all-purpose flour, minus 1 tbsp

2 tbsp sugar

2-3 tbsp butter

2 egg yolks

Dash of dark rum

Sauterne or white wine

Combine all ingredients. Mix with hands. Add rum and wine to make dough. Knead about 15 to 10 minutes, adding flour from board as necessary, until dough feels like velvet; cover and let rest in refrigerator at least 1 hour.

Roll out thin on floured board and cut into squares. String on the handle end of a wooden spoon, and carefully place in preheated deep-fryer. Fry until golden. Drain on brown paper bag. Roll in cinnamon sugar mixture of confectioners sugar.
