Ciambelle Dolci -Wine Cookies from Italy עוגיות יין איטלקיות


I Love these cookies,just ask me why ?.. OK I'll tell you why:1.They are tasty .
2.They are VerY easy to bake .
3.They are Not Too sweet !
4.You use oil - No butter (I use canola oil)
5.They aren't small cookies..
6.You eat them and feel the wine Aroma..
7.They're Italian..
8.One cookie can help you when you're hungry..
9.They're good for traveling,keep well for weeks in an air tight box.
SO... you have here 10 reasons why you should
NOT bake them :-)
Here comes the recipe,I use half recipe, and get 28 cookies :
[I don't use the Anise seeds]

Ciambelle With Wine

2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of White Wine
1 Cup of Oil (I find olive oil too strong of a flavor)
3 Tablespoons Anise Seeds
6 Teaspoons Baking Powder
8 Cups of All-Purpose Flour
Granulated Sugar


On a large board or counter top, start by making a large mound using 8 cups of flour, the sugar, anise seeds, and baking powder.
Make a well in the center, and begin to add the wine and the oil, mixing as you go along.
Continue in this manner, adding more flour as needed until all the liquid ingredients have been used. Knead for a few minutes until smooth. The dough should resemble stiff bread dough.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and begin to shape the cookies.

Break off a small piece, and roll it into a 1-1/2 inch thick rope about 7-8 inches long. Join the ends to form a ring shape.
The cookies should be about 3-4 inches across. Dip the tops in the sugar, and place on a baking sheet.
Bake for about 40 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool well before storing. These cookies keep well in a tightly closed container, but I like to freeze half which works out well.

העוגיות נשמרות זמן רב בקופסא אטומה או צנצנת יפה..(לא במקרר ), ועמידות לנסיעה
צורתן מזכירה סופגניה קטנה עם חור.. הכמויות , כאמור, הן מחצית המתכון המקורי

Oh my! I've long been wanting to read an English-language Israeli food blog. Now here is yours!

I was in a kibbutz in the Arava for a very short while, then travelled north to Nahariyya, to a souk in Akko, etc. It would be lovely to keep stay connected. I'll be reading your blog regularly.
