Ingredients

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 to 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • Confectioners' sugar

Directions

In a large bowl, beat egg yolks and sugar until pale yellow. Add cream and cardamom; mix well. Gradually add flour until dough is firm enough to roll.
On a lightly floured surface, roll into a 15-in. square. Using a pastry wheel or knife, cut into 15-in. x 1-1/2-in. strips; cut diagonally at 2-1/2-in. intervals. In the center of each diamond, make a 1-in. slit, pull one end through slit.
In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry bows, a few at a time, for 20-40 seconds or until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Dust with confectioners' sugar. Yield: 4 dozen.
