Fat Sparrows

 Since we have a new stash of maple syrup, Fat sparrows were called for.  My family loves these:

  For the fat sparrows you will need 1 egg, a pinch of salt, 1 C. sour cream, 1 heaping tsp. of baking soda, 1 C. flour, 2 T. sugar and 2 tsp. of vanilla extract to a bowl. 

Mix all of the ingredients together and let the batter sit for 15 minutes.  Cook in butter until brown and crunchy on the outside.  They will be very light and fluffy on the inside.

In case you are wondering about the name.

 And if you ever wanted a big crystal chandelier my advice is:  NO!  Don't do it.  They shine like jewelry when they are clean but keeping them clean is a bit of a problem.  The Easter cleaning has begun!
