  Categories: Desserts, Italian, Holiday, Cookies
       Yield: 1 servings
       3    Large eggs
       1 tb Butter; softened
       1 ts Sugar; plus
     1/2 c  Sugar
       2 c  All-purpose flour
     1/2 ts Baking powder
       1 c  Honey
            Vegetable oil; for deep-fryi
            Colored sprinkles
   Whisk together:  eggs, butter, 1 tsp sugar until foamy. Add baking
   powder; add flour.  Work the mixture into a soft dough with your
   hands. Divide dough into 4 pieces.  On a floured surface, roll each
   piece into a rope about the width of your index finger and 12 inches
   long. Cut the ropes into 1 pieces.  Toss the pieces with enough
   flour to dust them lightly and shake off excess flour. Heat oil to
   375F in a deep fryer. Fry the struffoli a few handfuls at a time
   until they puff up and are golden brown. Using a slotted spoon,
   transfer to a paper towel to drain. Combine the honey and the 1/2
   cups sugar in a large saucepan over low heat; stirring until the
   sugar has dissolved; keep warm over low heat. Add the fried balls, a
   few at a time, and turn them with a wooden spoon to coat on all
   sides. Transfer the balls to a large platter and mound them into a
   pyramid, shaping with wet hands. Sprinkle with the colored sprinkles
   and let stand for 1 to 2 hours.  Then just break off some pieces with
   your hands to eat.
