4 eggs, beaten
2/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 c. melted butter
1/2 tsp. salt
3 1/2 cups flour
3 tsp. baking powder

1. Mix together wet ingredients.
2. Mix together dry ingredients, then add wet ingredients and mix together.
3. Roll dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. You want to cut the dough to make diamond shapes; then poke a hole in the middle of each diamond and take one end of the bow tie and push it through to the other side. It's okay if the hole in the middle gets a little bit big, it will shrink up when cooked.
4. Fry in hot oil until lightly browned.
5. Spoon out and rest on paper towels.
6. Dip in hot honey, let excess drain off and place on wax paper to dry. Or, shake confectioner's sugar on top.
