Pat's notes for this recipe:
These European cookies are delicious no matter where they come from or how they are spelled. They are a fried cookie dessert and the meaning of the word is "dry cookie". These remind me of the Rosette cookies.
I think you will enjoy this version.

Combine the egg yolks, whole egg and salt in a bowl of mixer. Beat at high speed about 5 minutes , until thick and lemon colored.
Beat in sugar, cream, vanilla and rum. Add flour and cornstarch and beat until blisters form, about 5 minutes.
Turn dough out onto a floured board, divide in half, cover with plastic wrap and let rest for about 20 minutes.
Working with 1/2 the dough at a time, roll out to about 1/16 thickness,(kinda like rolling out homemade noodles). Cut 2-inch wide strips. Cut the strips on the diagonal at 4-inch intervals.(2x4-inch pieces)
Heat about 3-inches of oil in a large, deep skillet to 350^. Make a slit in the center of each strip of the cut dough. Then pull one end through the slit to form a bow( sometimes called bow-tie cookies).
Fry about 6 at a time for 1 minute or less per side or until golden. These fry quickly, so watch closely. Drain on paper towels.
Dust with powdered sugar or cinnamon/sugar mixture or a combination of all
