I found this recipe on a cooking site and tried them! 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) and I rolled the cookies in turbinado (raw) sugar instead of granulated sugar. My cookies were slightly purple before cooking. Then they turned a nice golden brown while they were baking. The taste reminds me of a really good sweet bread. This is a very unique cookie and I'm glad I tried it! I added my photo!
2In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder and the 3 tbls. of white sugar. Add the wine and oil. Mix with a large fork and then with your hands.
3Roll 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. Press the tops of the cookies in the raw sugar and place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
4Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 minutes or until slightly brown. After cookies cool they should be crisp on the outside and slightly soft on the inside.
