Directions:
Beat eggs, butter, salt and baking powder until smooth.

Add the flour to the egg mixture a little at a time until the dough becomes firm enough to knead. After you knead it to form a smooth ball, divide the dough into 5 separate dough balls. Let sit under a bowl for at least 15 minutes.

Working with each ball separately, knead again before you roll them with a rolling pin to a thin layer. Using a pizza cutter, cut into 2 1/2 to 3-inch thick strips (6" long). Pinch the strip in the middle to form a bow. Place each bow into a hot deep fryer until golden. Drain on a paper towel or brown paper until all excess oil is gone.

Personal Notes:
To serve you can sprinkle them with powdered sugar or if you like to make them really sweet add some honey!
