- 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar

Cut a 3/4-in. lengthwise slit down the center of each strip; pull one of the ends through the slit, forming a bow. Repeat.
- In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry cookies, a few at a time, for 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Dust with confectioners’ sugar.

Very disappointed in them. I couldn't find my grandmother's recipe and this seemed close to it, however,they came out soft and chewy instead of crisp.

Can't wait to try these. They look like what my grandmother use to make. She was Lithuanian and her 1st husband was Polish.
