Prep:30min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:50min 

  1. Warm the wine over medium heat. Remove from heat and add 12 cups of flour. Stir in 2 cups of water. If consistency is too dry, add up to 1/2 cup more of water. Knead well.
  2. Roll the dough into a snake and cut into 5cm pieces. Run each piece over a basket or use a fork to get ridges in the dough.
  3. Heat oil for frying in a large pot. Deep fry cookies until medium brown. Drain on paper towels.
  4. Warm honey in a frying pan until very liquid. Roll the cookies in the honey, and then place in a dish. Allow the honey to cool and serve.
