About this recipe: This is a recipe my grandmother from Italy passed down. It is similar to other Italian Wine Cookie recipes.
I've been looking for this recipe for a while now, but I'm confused on the the amount of oil. The recipe calls for 2 1/2 cups of veg. oil and then a quart for frying, but it doesn't tell you when to add the 2 1/2 cups of veg. oil. Was there a typo or am I really blind? - 29 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

Please do not add water. Just bring oil and wine to a boil, add a pinch of salt to flour and mix with oil and wine mixture, fry and coat with honey. delicious - 21 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
