Italian Bow Tie Cookies are fried Italian cookies which are perfect for Mardi Gras. My family loves pancakes, but if I am honest, I am not the biggest fan of them, so these bow tie cookies are a fantastic Pancake Tuesday recipe for me! 

If you take a look at the ingredients for these cookies, you will notice an unusual ingredient – Scotch whisky! The whisky adds a certain flavor and lightness to the dough. These deep fried treats taste delicious sprinkled with powdered sugar and served with strong coffee.   

To make Italian Bow Tie Cookies, you will need the following ingredients:

Ingridiens for Italian Bow Tie Cookies

Steps to make Italian Bow Tie Cookies

1

Combine eggs, sugar, salt, and whisky

2

Place 3 eggs, ¼ cup of sugar, ¼ teaspoon of salt, and ¼ cup of whisky in a large bowl and mix until fully combined.

2

Add flour

3

Add 1 cup of the flour and mix well. Add the remaining 1¾ cups of flour and mix until you have a slightly sticky dough.

3

Chill dough

1h

Shape the dough into a ball using your hands and refrigerate, covered, for about one hour.

4

Roll out dough

3

Remove the chilled dough from the refrigerator. Cut the dough ball in half and on a floured workspace, roll out one half very thinly.

5

Cut dough

3

Using a knife or cutter (a pasta rolling machine if you have one), cut the dough into strips. Approx 6 - 7 inches is a good size.

6

Make into ribbons

4

Make a little cut in the dough towards one end. Place the opposite end through that slit, and pull through to make a ribbon shape. Repeat, until all of the dough is used.

7

Heat oil

5

Heat at least 2 inches of oil in a wok, a saucepan or fryer until hot.

8

Fry cookies

10

Before cooking each pastry ribbon in the oil, pull and stretch them, so that it is thinner (as they shrink after being shaped). Drop the pastries in the oil until they are puffed up and lightly browned all over.

9

Drain oil

Remove from the oil and transfer the fried cookies to a paper towel lined plate to drain and cool.

10

Sprinkle with powdered sugar

Sprinkle the cookies with powdered sugar.

11

Serve

Serve with strong coffee or tea.
