Ingrients & Directions


3 1/2 c All-purpose flour
-plus extra for kneading
2 ts Baking soda
1 tb Freshly ground cinnamon
1 tb Freshly ground cloves
1/4 c Mild olive oil
2 tb Honey
1/2 c Petimezi
-(Greek wine must syrup)
-OR- Italian vino cotto
-OR- Honey
1/2 Orange; (grated zest)
1 c Orange juice

Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and cloves into a
large bowl, making a well in the center. In a smaller bowl, beat the
olive oil with the honey, petimezi, grated orange zest, and 1/2 the
orange juice and pour into the well. Mix together to make a dough,
adding the remaining orange juice as necessary.

Turn onto a floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes until the
dough is smooth but not stiff. Cover with a cloth and leave to relax
for 30 minutes or longer.

Break off pieces of dough, about 2 tablespoonfuls each, and roll into
snakes about 1/2-inch in diameter. Press the two ends together,
forming oval wreaths, and place on an oiled or non-stick baking
sheet. Bake in an oven preheated to 375 F for 10-15 minutes- until
they are brown and crunchy, but not too hard.
