BOW TIE COOKIES

These are cookies which is shaped into bow tie shape made of puff pastry Bow Tie cookies are very popular tea time snack sold in most Irani tea houses in state of Hyderabad. The cookies are shaped into bow tie hence the name bow tie cookies. The cookies are made with puff pastry dough. The puff pastry dough is a bit laborious to prepare but worth the time as the baked bow tie cookies is just mouth-melting snack to eat.

This can also be made and kept in the fridge for further use for making a variety of dishes like cheese straws, vegetable puffs, paua paneer, egg puffs etc. Puff pastry is a leavened pastry that is very light, flaky and has several layers of fat. The gaps between the layers left by the fat melting are pushed by the water turning into steam during the baking process. Piercing the dough will prevent excessive puffing and crimping along the side will prevent the layers from flaking all along the edges.
