Directions:
Roll out dough 1/2 to 1/4 inch thick and cut in strips abt 6 inches long. We use a pastry cutting wheel to cut strips but you can use a knife. Tie strips into a bow by crossing one leg over the other creating a circle than bring one end into the circle and out again. Deep fry these bows, gently placing them into the hot oil with a slotted spoon, when they start to turn golden, drain on a paper towel and sprinkle with confectioners sugar
