Italian White Wine Ciambelline – Recipe

These are the “ciambelline al vino” a very traditional and simple little italian biscuits.

I learnt this receipe from my grandmather when I was a child.

I think it would be a shame if we lost some of the oldest, most simple recipes.

They are traditional cookies, in the shape of a little donut, from my Region (Lazio).

The recipe for these delicious wine biscuits is simple and quick, and very much an Italian way of cooking – you’ll be mixing oil and wine with flour and sugar!

They’re light, crunchy and rustic. Made to be dipped in wine, at the end of a meal. But they’re also good with tea, or at snack time.

  • White wine
