Course: Desserts



Recommended Hamilton Beach® Product:
Deep Fryer
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons sherry
  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar for dusting


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, and sugar together. Add egg, butter and vanilla; mix until dough becomes stiff. Stir in sherry one tablespoon at a time until dough is workable and smooth. Cover and refrigerate for about 2 hours. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into long narrow strips, and tie into loose knots, do not pull tight.
  2. Heat oil to 375°F. Fry cookie ties in hot oil for about two minutes, until they puff and turn golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Dust with confectioners sugar while still warm.
