Let’s Make Jewish Bow Tie Cookies!
The Fellowship | August 24, 2017
Try this classic Jewish treat, called kichlach, made of fried dough dusted with powdered sugar thanks to our friends at The Nosher!
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 1/4 tsp white vinegar
- vegetable oil for deep fat frying
- confectioners’ sugar
- Place the flour and salt in a bowl.
- Add the beaten eggs and vinegar and mix thoroughly until a smooth dough has formed (you can use an electric mixer or food processor).
- Let the dough rest, covered with plastic wrap, for at least 30 minutes.
- Roll out portions of the dough on a lightly floured surface until the dough is very thin, almost like paper.
- Cut the dough into squares or rectangles or odd shapes.
- Heat about 2 inches vegetable oil in a deep saute pan (or use a deep fryer) over medium-high heat until the oil reaches about 375 degrees (a bread crumb or tiny piece of dough will sizzle quickly when you drop it into the oil).
- Drop the cutouts, a few at a time into the oil (they will puff up) and cook briefly on both sides until they are crispy and faintly browned.
- Drain on paper towels. Sift confectioners’ sugar on top.
