Stir in the brandy, extracts, grated lemon rind and blend into yolk mixture.
Resift flour with salt, mixing into other ingredients.
Turn dough out on a lightly-floured board.
Knead it and knead it until it becomes a smooth dough, firm enough to roll.
Chill for one hour before preparation.
Roll out on board thinner than pie crust and cut in strips about one and a half inches wide and four inches long.
Cut out a small rectangular slit in the center of each strip about 1 inch long and pull one end of it through.
Have deep fat heated to about 390 degrees F (test: hot enough to fry a crustless one-inch cube of bread gold brown in 30 seconds).
Drop the strips into it a few at a time and fry to a pale golden brown.
Strain out, drain on paper towel and dust with confectioners' sugar.
Krusczikis, sometimes called Polish Pretzils or Lover's Knots, are fried like doughnuts. They are a Polish delicacy. The spelling was written by my Uncle John's Polish born mother on her recipe. It has a phonetic apostrophe mark over the fist letter "s."
