Cooking cookies "Sugar bows":
Step 1: Prepare the dry ingredients.
So, we start cooking cookies with dry ingredients, namely: with flour (measure out 225 g), baking powder and salt. They must be poured into a bowl or deep plate and thoroughly mixed with a whisk until smooth.
Step 2: Cook the dough.
Then we put a small pot on the burner and turn on a small fire. We spread the butter and, with constant stirring with a kitchen spatula, melt to a liquid state. Oil can be melted in the microwave, it will turn out even faster. In any case, hot butter needs to be cooled, for this we simply set it aside.
Next, wash the eggs under hot running water. One - carefully divided into yolk and protein. Yolk can be used to prepare other tasty dishes, but the protein is far from being removed, we will need it soon. The other two are broken into a separate plate, add water and beat thoroughly with a whisk. Then we pour the cooled butter, vanilla extract to them (it is added for a more saturated aroma and is optional) and again we beat everything well until smooth.
Now gradually pour the dry mixture (from flour, baking powder and salt) into a plate with beaten eggs, while stirring with a whisk.
The dough will be sticky and very soft, so pour the remaining 75 g of flour in parts and knead the homogeneous dough with your hands.
This process should not take more than 2 minutes.
Step 3: We form bows.Then we rub the rolling pin with flour, sprinkle it on a flat surface, divide the dough in half and begin to roll out. It is desirable to roll out the dough into a layer resembling a rectangle, and as thin as possible. Then we cut it with a sharp knife first into longitudinal strips.
After doing a few transverse. In our case, we got 3 by 6 centimeters rectangles, but you can change the size of your own free will, depending on which bows you ultimately want to get.
And now the most crucial moment has come - the formation of the cookie itself. We put next to the plate with the left protein (this will be our glue), grease the center of the rectangle with it and pinch the edges.
Thus, we form all other test rectangles.
Step 4: Cooking Cookies.
On the stove we turn on the maximum fire, put the pan and pour the vegetable oil. A layer of oil should be about 2 centimeters. We are waiting for it to fully heat up, but you can check it with plain water. If a drop drops, it begins to hiss loudly, which means the oil has warmed up to the desired temperature and you can start frying.
Carefully, using a slotted spoon, put a few bows in oil and cook until a beautiful golden color is formed. If necessary, cookies can be turned over and oil added to the pan. Then, we also carefully take out the bows and lay them on napkins so that they absorb excess fat.
After we lay them out nicely on plates and while hot, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Step 5: Serve the cookie.
Cookies "Sugar bows" are served in a cooled form to the dessert table. Perfectly combined with aromatic tea, coffee, hot chocolate or milk. Choose your favorite drink and enjoy!
Enjoy your meal!
- Together with vanilla extract, you can add lemon juice (1 teaspoon) or lemon zest (2 teaspoons) to the dough.
- Baking is tastier if you sift the flour before starting to cook. After all, she gets rid of flour lumps and is saturated with oxygen.
- If you have some free time, it is better to leave the dough before rolling for 30 minutes to make it easier to work with.
