Italian Love Knots

Recipe Ingredients

Dough

Icing

Method

  1. If margarine is coming directly from the refrigerator, microwave a little until soft.
  2. Cream margarine and sugar together for a minute or two.
  3. Add milk, eggs, orange (if using), baking powder and flour. The dough should be soft but not sticky.
  4. On lightly floured board, divide into small (2-inch) balls, then roll into pencils (the size of your finger) and tie into knot.
  5. Put on cookie sheets with parchment paper liner.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees F until light brown, maybe 5 to 7 minutes. Watch carefully to keep from burning.
  7. Apply icing when cool.
  8. Icing: Mix together all but the water. Add water gradually to desired thickness. Spread on cookies.
