"Many European cultures had this type of fried cookie. This particular recipe says to tie it in a knot but it can be made pulling one end through a slit cut into the dough."

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
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.
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!!
My Norwegian grandmother made these every Christmas, but used cardamon rather than anise or brandy. Our favorite treat!!
