WINE BISCUITS

Ingredients:

3/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
1 cup sugar
1 cup white wine
1 1/2 teaspoons anise seed
5 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon anise extract (optional...add if you like anise flavor)
finely chopped zest of an orange (optional)
~4-5 cups flour

Process:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk all all ingredients together except the flour. Then gradually add enough flour until you can handle the dough for rolling (dough will be slightly sticky). Take small amounts of dough and roll them into desired shapes (like logs, figure eights, bows, etc.). Place rolled dough pieces on a cookie sheet, leaving room for the biscuits to expand. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees. Then reduce the heat to 300 degrees and bake until the biscuits are a light to medium brown color, crisp, and fully dried out (this can take 30 minutes or more). If your oven has hot spots, you may want to rotate your cookie sheet.

Notes: 

Nick's family likes to dip the biscuits in coffee at breakfast. Recipe doubles well. The cookies freeze well too.
