Farfallette Dolci - Sweet bowknots

Published January 08, 2008        by Nicole

  • 6 eggs
  • 3 tbs. granulated sugar
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. orange flavor
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tbs. butter
  • 1 tsp. almond flavor
  • 3 cups peanut oil

Beat eggs lightly; add granulated sugar, salt, and flavoring; blend thoroughly. Place flour on board; cut in butter; add egg mixture. Knead until smooth ball is obtained. If dough is too soft, gradually add a little flour to make it firm but not hard. Set aside for 30 minutes. Then cut dough into 4 sections.

Roll on well floured board until wafer thin. Cut with pastry cutter into strips 6 inches long by ¾ inch wide. Tie in individual bow-knots. Fry bows about 3 minutes or until light brown in deep hot peanut oil. Drain on absorbent paper; cool; sprinkle with powdered sugar. Makes about 6 to 7 dozen bow-knots. These are wonderful to put in cookie tins for holiday gift baskets.
