Biscotti di vino: Red Wine Cookies

This recipe works for both red or white wine. For my recipe below, I used a left over bold red Italian Montepulciano bottle I had opened last week to make a beef stew. To make this a sweeter treat, I dredged the cookie in cinnamon sugar prior to baking. The cinnamon is a wonderful flavor that compliments the red wine, but I would likely leave out if I made this cookie with a white wine.

You will need:

Cinnamon sugar (mix 1 cup granulated sugar with 1.5 tsp cinnamon)

4 1/2 cup all purpose flour (plus extra if required)
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup red wine

5) Mix the dough together slowly incorporating the flour with the wet ingredients.

6) If the mixture is too wet, add extra flour 2 tbsp at a time. The dough should be soft yet firm but not sticky

7) Once the dough it ready, take ping pong sized scoops of dough and shape into a doughnut. Dredge in the cinnamon sugar mixture.

    I tried putting wine in a cake mix once – but I didn’t include enough to be able to taste it, although the colour was very pretty. These look so good 😀
