14 egg yolks
2 cups sour cream
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
8 cups flour
1 1/2 cups shortening
1/3 cup powdered sugar
In a large bowl mix together all ingredients. Stir into a ball, then turn dough out onto a floured surface. Knead dough for 1/2 hour. If you have a mixer with a dough hook attachment, mix for about 15 minutes. Let dough rest for 10 minutes.
On a floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4 to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into strips that are 3 inches long and 1 inch wide. In the center of each strip, cut a 1 inch slit, lengthwise. Pull one end of the strip through the slit to form a bow.
In a frying pan or an electric skillet, melt shortening and heat to about 350 degrees F. Place cookies in hot oil. Cook on both sides until lightly browned then remove to a paper towel. Dust cookies with powdered sugar. The powdered sugar may absorb some of the oil, so you may want to dust them several times. Makes about 36
