Gather some of the ingredients you already have in your pantry and use your leftover wine alongside it to make these simple but tasty Italian wine cookies.
These cookies originally came from the south of Rome, having a long history of being passed down through generations. It is quite a basic recipe, the dough being quite simple, to suit any Roman family, rich or poor. All they needed were wine, sugar, oil, salt and flour.
Another plus to this recipe aside from using up your leftover wine is that it works with any kind of dry wine, red or white, the only difference will be in flavor, but only slight.
These cookies aren’t full of sugar either, so if you’re on a health kick, they won’t be too bad! They’re donut-shaped and are more like biscuits. You can enjoy them as a snack or dip them in milk or coffee, as the Italians would do.
