Recipe Monday - Italian Wine Cookies

These are an old family recipe, passed down from my grandmother. They are my favorite cookie of all time.

6 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1.5 cups sugar
1 grated lemon and
1/3 cup lemon or orange juice
1 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
1 glass (6 oz) white wine or rose
add chocolate chips (as many as you like!)

Mix flour sugar and baking powder; make a hole in the dry ingredients and put the wet ones in it. 
Mix well - Knead until it doesn't stick to your hands.  
Take a small amount and roll long then twist into a circle cookie.
Dip into granulated sugar.
Bake at 375* for 10 minutes
Add flour to make the dough less sticky, but not too much. Otherwise these will weigh down in your stomach. Trust me, I know. Hah. I halved the recipe. My family doesn't need more than two dozen large cookies at a time!

  3. I expected to see wine in the recipe, hmm... Why are those cookies called wine? I used to have fruits, sometimes cheese with wine, guess this habit had left from the times of my work as a writer of research paper for writing sites. Is it cookies for you?
