|EVERY FEW MINUTES|
|FARFALLETTE DOLCI - SWEET BOWKNOTS|
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon orange flavoring*
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon almond flavoring
3 cups peanut oil, for frying
*Anisette liqueur may be substituted for the orange flavoring (omit almond).
Using a whisk, beat eggs until foamy, gradually adding sugar, flavoring, and salt.
In a food processor, pulse together butter and flour several times until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. While processing, pour in egg mixture and process for only a few seconds more.
Remove to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Set aside to rest for 30 minutes.
Divide dough into 4 sections. Roll out on a pastry board dusted with flour until wafer-thin. Sprinkle lightly with additional flour, if needed, to prevent dough from sticking (try not to use too much).
Using a pastry cutter, cut strips 6 inches long by 3/4 inch wide.
Heat oil until it is hot enough for a 1 inch cube of bread to brown in 1 minute.
Tie each of the dough strips into a bowknot shape. Deep fry bows for 3 minutes or until a light golden color.
Drain on paper towels. When bows are room temperature, sprinkle liberally with confectioners sugar.
Store in air-tight containers.
Makes 6-7 dozen bowknots.
