Have you ever had a wine biscuit?
These wine biscuits have a soft texture to them and are so tasty and pretty!
I love the subtle wine taste and the aroma!
I am not a fan of the wine biscuits you can buy in Italian specialty stores which to me are too hard and not flavorful enough. These are different!
I got this great recipe from my friend Donna. Come to find out, she got it in a church cookbook which happened to be my childhood church!
If you’ve never had a wine biscuit, give this a try and you will be surprised how good it is!
Below see pictures how to make it
in the slideshow and in the fast-speed video.
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 cup oil
- 1 cup red wine
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 5 cups flour
- 5 teaspoons baking powder
- Preheat the oven to 350°.
- With a mixer on medium speed, combine the brown sugar, white sugar, oil, red wine, and salt.
- ON low speed, add in the flour and baking powder. Mix until a soft dough is formed.
- Roll a heaping tablespoon piece of dough into a 5-inch-long rope shape.
- Now form the rope into a circle, or leave it long, or twist it to make a pretzel shape. Form it into whatever shape you want!
- Place the wine biscuits about 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until the bottoms are a light golden brown.
- Remove the wine biscuits immediately to cool on a wire rack.
- Store them covered at room temperature.
