Directions

  1. Warm the wine and oil over medium heat. Remove from heat and add 12 cups of flour. Stir in water, 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough comes together in a soft ball. Knead well.
  2. Roll the dough into a snake and cut into two inch 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.

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?

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
