Red Wine Cookies

These cookies are easy and delicious!

And they make the prettiest pink batter!

Red Wine Cookies
Recipe from CiaoChow Linda

1 cup dry red wine (the better the wine, the better the cookies)
1 cup sugar
1 cup vegetable oil 
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp. of baking soda
1/2 tsp. of baking powder
4 1/2 c. flour - (start with one cup but keep adding as much as necessary until you get a dough that has a thick consistency and can be easily rolled.)
more sugar for dipping

Place the red wine, oil, and sugar in a bowl and whisk together. Add the baking soda, baking powder, and the flour, sifting it into the bowl at little at a time. Stir with a wooden spoon, continuing to add more flour until it has a stiff consistency.

Gently roll out small pieces of the dough on a wooden board into a narrow "snake" shape - about 6 inches, the thickness of small finger. Then carefully swirl the ends toward the center, into an "S" shape. Dip into sugar and place on a cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 to 25 minutes.  The cookies should be browned on the bottom and slightly on top.

I love these cookies. My friend Milena taught me how to make these years ago and they're a favorite. By the way, I updated the coffee semifreddo recipe on Ciao Chow Linda. Thanks for your inquiry.
