Butterfly Cookies

1 Package won ton wrappers
1 c Powdered sugar
Oil for deep frying

PREPARATION: Cut each won ton wrapper into 2 rectangles. Lay one rectangle on top of the other to form a double thickness. Make three 1/2-inch slits in the center, lengthwise. To form a bow, pull one end through the middle slit.

COOKING: Deep fry butterflies until golden, about 1 minute or less. Drain on paper towel. Sift powdered sugar over both sides. Cool.

DO-AHEAD NOTES: These keep several weeks in air-tight containers.

COMMENTS: These can also be made from egg roll wrappers but they’re three times as large. I prefer using won ton wrappers because I think their mini size makes them more attractive.
