Vin Santo Rings

Tender and crisp, these cookies are great for dipping in coffee. They keep very well.

2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup vin santo
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. combine the flour and sugar in a large bowl,add the oil and wine, and stir until thoroughly blended and smooth.
  2. Pinch off a piece of the dough about 1 inch in diameter. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into a 4-inch rope, about 1/2-inch thick. Pinch the ends together to form a ring.
  3. Place the ring on an ungreased baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, placing rings about 1 inch apart.
  4. Bake the rings for 20 minutes, or until very lightly browned. Transfer to cooling racks. Stored in an airtight container, these cookies keep for quite a while.
