Ingredients:  
3 eggs
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. milk
1/2 tsp. salt
2 3/4 c. all purpose flour
vegetable oil at least an inch deep in a skillet or a deep fryer
sifted confectioners sugar in a bowl.

Directions:
In a medium bowl with a wooden spoon, mix eggs, sugar, milk, salt and 1 cup of the flour, until well-blended. Stir in remaining flour until dough is no longer white. Wrap dough in plastic or wax paper, refrigerate for about 2 hours or until easy to handle.
On a lightly floured surface, with lightly floured rolling pin, roll out about half of the dough, until it is paper thin. With a sharp knife, cut dough into rectangles 4 inches long by about 1 1/2 inches wide. Cut a 1 inch slot in the center of the rectangle lengthwise. Thread one end of the rectangle through the slit and pull gently to make a shape resembling a bow tie.
In oil that is about 350F hot, gently drop several bowties at a time and fry for about 1 1/2 minutes or until golden. (they will float on top and may need turning for even brownness). Drain on a paper towel and roll in the bowl of confectioners sugar.

Makes about 7 dozen.
