Servings: 24

  • 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.
