with sugar. Flatten into long strips with rolling pin, turning frequently
to coat with sugar.

dessert. Then place a small loop in center to cover center of bow. Cut
"V's" at one end of remaining two strips, if desired; place under loops to
resemble ends of ribbon. FROSTED FRUITS: Use fresh cranberries or green or
red seedless grapes. Dip fruit into lightly beaten egg white. (NOTE: Use
