  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder and sugar. Add the wine and oil. Mix with a large fork and then with your hands.
  3. Roll small pieces of dough between hands to make "logs" then shape into circles. The circles should be no bigger than the 2 inches in diameter. Roll cookies in extra sugar and place on cookie sheet.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 minutes or until slightly brown. After cookies cool they should be hard and crisp.

The easiest cookie recipe ever. Although to improve the flavor slightly I added about a teaspoon of vanilla and a half of a lemon peel chopped finely. Half the batch I coated with regular suga...

Wasn't sure what to expect with these. They did not smell like cookies at all while they were baking. The dough is pretty soft to work with and when rolling into a log shape they didn't hold the...

This is a very good Italian cookie. I thought it wouldn't be sweet enough because there isn't much sugar in the recipe, but it did have a nice sweetness to it. I used a Chianti wine (very dry) a...

These cookies are fantastic! They are light and crisp and even PURPLE!! They are just like the ones that my grandma used to make when she came here from Italy!

Very yummy, but one important step was left out of the directions. The oil must be added to the dry ingredients BEFORE the wine and worked into them well, first. This coats the flour and keeps...

Okay, I really like these cookies, which is different bc I'm not a big crispy cookie fan. However, I really don't like stuff that is way too sweet and these really aren't. I love how cute they...

These were delicious. I made half the recipe because I wasn't sure I'd like them, but kept the amount of sugar the same. The one thing I did not do, however, is grease the pan, which I *strongly...

These are perfect! Anyone who says they're not a cookie doesn't know what a wine cookie is supposed to be. No, it's not a Chipsahoy, but it's an excellent wine cookie... easy and delicious!

Wow! The house smelled really good while these were baking. I was skeptical of the recipe since it called for so few ingredients (plus it seemed like a lot of liquid for the amount of flour), ...

I also had trouble being able to roll it out and make them into spirals the first time because they were so sticky. However, the second time I made the recipe, I made the full recipe instead of...
