4 cups flour
2 sticks unsalted butter, cold and cubed
1 teaspoon kosher salt
4 large egg yolks
8 oz evaporated milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
Oil for frying
Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Cut in cubed butter until mixture is crumbly.
In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks until foamy. Add milk and vanilla extract, then egg mixture into flour mixture. Stir until dough forms.
Transfer dough to a clean, lightly floured surface. Knead the dough for about 30 seconds then divide into four even sections.
Roll each section into a rectangle shape, about ¼-inch thick. Cut into four 1 ½ inch strips.
Cut a 2-inch slit lengthwise down the middle of each strip. Draw one of the ends through the slit to create a bow shape.
Heat 1-2 inches of oil into an electric skillet or deep frying pan. Fry strips of dough in small batches until golden brown.
Transfer fried strips to a plate lined with a paper towel. Dust with powdered sugar. Repeat until all of the dough has been fried and sprinkled with powdered sugar.
