Italian Wine Cookies Recipe
- 2 ½ cups vegetable oil
- 2 ½ cups red wine
- 12 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 quart vegetable oil for frying
- 1 cup honey, warmed slightly
step 1: Warm the wine and oil over medium heat. Remove from heat and add 12 cups of flour. Stir in water, 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough comes together in a soft ball. Knead well.
step 2: 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.
step 3: Heat oil for frying in a large pot. Deep fry cookies until medium brown. Drain on paper towels.
step 4: 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.
