this is and old recipe that my grandma made for years her mother past this down to her and she past it my mom and my mom gave it to me the only thing differant is that she makes hers with shortening not oil so that the dough is not to wet and fryes up nice she has this old ceader board that has riges in it and rolls them like a cavatt i hope that the people that has had a hard time with this recipe will try it one more time with the shortening good luck and happy baking
I've been looking for this recipe for a while now, but I'm confused on the the amount of oil. The recipe calls for 2 1/2 cups of veg. oil and then a quart for frying, but it doesn't tell you when to add the 2 1/2 cups of veg. oil. Was there a typo or am I really blind?
Please do not add water. Just bring oil and wine to a boil, add a pinch of salt to flour and mix with oil and wine mixture,
fry and coat with honey.
This recipe does not work. Tried it twice and no results. Dough is way to wet even at only two cups. Then tried adding mord flour and at 3/4 cup gave up. When cooked in oil we tried some for 10 minutes and even then although outside was crisp inside was wet.
thank you sooooooo much!!! I have searched for more years than I care to reveal. this is like bringing my Nana back to me.... Hugs to you!!!!
Thank you, I have been searching for this recipe for 7 years. It was a Christmas tradition to make Italian Wine cookies since I was a child. This one of the easiest and most deliciousest cookies I know. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Thank you, again.
This is a super huge recipe. I make a large batch of dough w/ 1 cup oil, 1 cup wine, 1 cup water and about 6-8 cups of flour until it workable. Also add 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. cloves and the finely chopped orange peel of 3 large oranges. Fry them then honey them. I like to add a couple of Tbsp of sugar to the sugar to form a glaze.
We edited the recipe to include the oil and address the many issues that users have had with the amount of water in the recipe.
