Cookie Recipe #314 - Olive Oil and Wine Cookies
This cookie came from a book my best friend bought me while out shopping and it gets the "MUCI" Award (most unusual cookie ingredients): olive oil and red wine. They are very tasty and would be a great addition to a platter of cheese and the remaining red wine (if any is left).
Ingredients: 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 cup granulated sugar, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1/4 cup dry red wine.
Instructions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside. Place the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and pepper in large mixing bowl and mix until everything is incorporated. Gradually, while mixer is running, add the olive oil and wine. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix again.
Drop the dough by tablespoons about 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. The dough tends to separate so bake these right away. If you like flatten cookies slightly.
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven until the cookies are lightly browned, 12-15 minutes. Cool on the cookie sheets. Transfer to wire racks.
Makes 2-3 dozen cookies.
