Dough
Place the butter in a bowl, whisk in the sugar and salt. Add the eggs one at a time and continue to whisk until the mixture becomes lighter in colour. Stir in the orange zest. Mix the flour and baking powder, add and carefully combine to form a soft dough. Cover and refrigerate for approx. 1 hr.
To shape
On a lightly floured surface, shape the dough into rolls (approx. 2 cm in diameter), cut the rolls diagonally into pieces approx. 3 cm long. Shape into Schenkeli, make an incision lengthwise (approx. 2 mm deep) using a knife.
To deep-fry
Fill a pot to ⅓ with oil and heat it to approx. 160°C. Slide the Schenkeli into the oil using a slotted spoon, fry for approx. 2 mins. until golden brown, turning occasionally. Remove from the oil, drain on kitchen paper, dust with icing sugar and leave to cool on a rack.
