Every Christmas and Easter my Grandmother would make batches and batches of her Italian Knots. They have always been my favorite cookie and I am so glad that she taught be how to make them. This year I am adding a twist to the traditional knot cookie and shaping the dough into the shape of a bunny!
Click here to see my original post on how to make traditional knots.
4 cups flour
1 cup sugar
½ lb. butter (2 sticks)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
5 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
Melt butter, add sugar, eggs, vanilla, baking powder, and salt…slowly add flour. Chill dough in refrigerator for an hour. Form knots or bunnies and bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.
Mix confectioner’s sugar, a drop of vanilla, and warm water until you get the consistency you want (I like my icing on this thick side). Dip tops of cookies into icing and add sprinkles! EnJoY!
