Wine Cookies


  • 1/2 C. Dry white or red wine
  • 1/3 C. Oil
  • 1/2 C. Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking powder
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp. Anise seeds (Optional)
  • 2 1/4 C. All purpose flour
  • Sugar for coating


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°.

  2. In a medium mixing bowl add wine, oil, sugar, salt and baking powder (add anise seeds if using) mix well, gradually add flour, a little at a time, until it all comes together.

  3. Transfer to a slightly floured flat surface and knead lightly approximately 10 times. Dough will be soft, so don’t work it too much.

  4. Cut off a little dough at a time, roll into a small chubby rope (about 5 inches) and bring ends together to form a circle.

  5. Dip in sugar and place on parchment covered cookie sheets, bake for approximately 25-30 minutes, or lightly browned.
