makes: 4-5 dozen
1 whole egg
2 egg yolks
1-1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
½ tablespoon melted butter
¼ pint sour cream
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
vegetable oil for frying
Beat egg, egg yolks, sugar, vanilla, melted butter, and sour cream.
Gradually add flour.
Roll out on a lightly floured board and knead until smooth (use more flour if needed).
Roll out dough very thin, ⅛" thick.
Cut into rectangles 3" x 5".
Cut a slit down the middle, lengthwise.
Slip one end through slit, to make a "bow".
Deep fry bows until golden brown on both sides.
Deep-fry only a few at a time so the oil stays hot. (If oil cools too much, cookies will absorb too much oil and be greasy.)
Drain on paper towels.
Sprinkle warm cookies with powdered sugar.
