This is a European style biscuit which is threaded into a bow and deep fried. You can also tie them into bows if you find that easier.
I have been looking for the recipe for these cookies. My Mom used to make them and so did my aunts. They were always served at a shower. We called them "Wandi". Thank you so much for the recipe - 03 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is an Italian fried Bowtie cookie traditionally made in Sicily. I used to have these all the time growing up. It was our version of snackfood.The only difference from our recipe is we do not use brandy or anise seed and use vanilla or almond extract instead. Much better taste.Dad used to make these in his bakerey and always sold out faster than he could make them. - 07 Jan 2012 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is almost identical to the recipe that my father got from his great grandmother who brought it from Hungary. We call the cookies Churtagers. Dad never knew if that was a real name or just one his "Gram" used. Thanks!! - 28 Nov 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
