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
powdered sugar

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". Heat oil. 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.
