3 large egg yolks
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 tablespoons heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon crushed cardamom or 1 teaspoon brandy
1-1/4 to 1-1/2 cup all-purpose flour
powdered sugar

Beat egg yolks until light. Add sugar and cream, beat well. Blend in cardamom or brandy. Add flour and mix well to make a smooth dough. Roll out to 1/16" thickness. Cut in strips about 1 1/2" wide. Cut diagonally at 4" intervals. Make 2" slit crosswise in centre and slip one end through slit, to make a "bow". Deep fry in hot deep fat (350F) until delicately browned, about 1 1/2 min. Drain on paper towels. Cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
