4 Tbsp

3
eggs
1 tsp
vanilla extract

How to Make Bow Ties

Step-by-Step

  • 1Using 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.
  • 2Divide 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.
  • 3Heat 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.
