Italian Wine Cookies

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This is a recipe my grandmother from Italy passed down. It is similar to other Italian Wine Cookie recipes.

INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):


  • Warm the wine over medium heat. Remove from heat and add 12 cups of flour. Stir in 2 cups of water. If consistency is too dry, add up to 1/2 cup more of water. Knead well.
  • Roll the dough into a snake and cut into two inch pieces. Run each piece over a basket or use a fork to get ridges in the dough.
  • Heat oil for frying in a large pot. Deep fry cookies until medium brown. Drain on paper towels.
  • Warm honey in a frying pan until very liquid. Roll the cookies in the honey, and then place in a dish. Allow the honey to cool and serve.

  • Editor's Note:

    We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
