Stir in melted butter, cardamom, and lemon rind.
Add cream and flour.
The dough will be quite buttery and easy to handle.
Roll out dough about 1/4 inch thick.
Cut with pastry cutter or knife into oblongs 1 inch wide.
Cut a slit into the middle of each oblong and pull one corner through to make a knot.
If you prefer, just twist the oblong to make a ribbon effect.
Heat fat in skillet.
Fry crullers until lightly browned; drain on paper.
Store in a tightly covered container.
When ready to serve, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
