  • 1 tsp
    vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2
    to 1-3/4 cups flour

How to Make Bow Ties

Step-by-Step

  1. Using an electric mixer, beat together the butter, eggs, and vanilla.
    On low speed, gradually add 1 cup fo flour, baking powder, and salt.
    Transfer the dough to a well-floured surface and knead in the remaining flour.
    The dough should be smooth and elastic.
    Add additional flour, if the dough is too sticky.
  2. Divide the dough in half.
    Roll out one piece of the dough to about 1/8-inch thick in a rectangular shape.
    Using a pastry cutter, cut the dough into strips 4 inches long by 2 inches wide.
    Cut a small slit in the center of each strip.
    Take one end of the strip and pull it through the slit in the center.
    This will give you a bow tie shape.
    Continue rolling and shaping all the dough.
  3. Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees F.
    Drop a few of the bow ties into the oil.
    Only fry 4 to 5 pieces at a time so they are not crowded in the oil
    Fry 1 to 2 minutes, until lightly browned on both sides, turning them often with a slotted spoon.
    Remove the bow ties from the oil with a slotted spoon and transfer to paper towels to drain.

    When cool, dust with confectioners' sugar.
