    NorthwestGal's Note:

    These sweet Italian cookies are often referred to as Lovers' Knots because of their knotted shaped. They're most often eaten at carnival time in February, but they make a delight treat anytime of the year. I found the recipe in the Italian cookbook "Italian Kitchen" that was part of a Barnes & Noble series called World Cook's Collection.
