Biscotti di Vino

Biscotti di Vino is really just a fancy name for wine biscuits.  I love these little treats with a cup of coffee in the morning or as a snack in the afternoon… they always seem to hit the sweet tooth spot.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  •  Optional: 1/2  – 1 1/2 tsp  ground black pepper
    • Adds a nice little bit of spice – but if you’re making it for kids, I’d leave it out
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup dark red wine, the darker the better
    • You could also use white, but I think that the red gives them more flavor

HOW TO MAKE IT

  • Combine the dry ingredients
  • Add in the oil and wine and mix until it just forms a dough
  • Roll a small ball of dough out into a small cylinder and tie into a knot or just pinch into a round circle
  • Line up the biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet about an inch apart
  • Bake on the middle oven rack at 350°F for 20-25 minutes or until the bottoms are golden brown
