olive oil and wine cookies

These Olive Oil and Wine Cookies are kind of a cousin to the Canistrelli we made a few weeks ago. They hail from the south of France, where olive oil is more widely used than butter. I used a sweet white wine in the dough that was actually homemade by someone I know…please don’t tell, but it’s better to bake with than it is to drink…haha. I don’t think I got the dough shaping down here. They are supposed to have chubby middles and tapered, pinched ends but mine look a little wonky. No matter, they baked up crunchy and made good coffee dunking treats anyway (although TBH, I liked the Canistrelli a bit better for their anise flavor).

For the recipe, see Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll!

  1. These are good for dunking in espresso, aren’t they?

  2. I liked these and the canistrelli – I did find them very similar.

  3. These were hard to shape!! Yours look great…but what I really noticed was how orange your cantaloupe is…wow! Looks way more flavorful than the ones we have here haha!

  4. Homemade wine a nice touch. Wonky cookies are a good thing. I also liked the other ones better:)
