Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Place the flour on a worktable. Make a well in the center of the flour and add the sugar, extra-virgin olive oil and wine. Combine together and knead until the mixture becomes an even dough. If necessary, add a little more flour to absorb all the liquids. Sprinkle a tablespoon of anise seeds on the dough and knead well. Sprinkle the rest of the anise seeds, and continue to knead so that the seeds are evenly distributed. Cut off a small amount of dough and roll into a 1/2-inch thick log. Cut the log into a 5-inch long piece. Then form a 'doughnut-like' shape by pinching opposite ends together. Repeat the above process with the remaining dough.

Line a baking tray with cooking parchment paper and arrange the ciambelle, approximately 2-inches apart. Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until golden brown.

    The recipe has cooking time 10 minutes. My batch took 18 to 20 minutes. Not real sweet but very tasty. One of David's recipes has one tablespoon aniseeds and another says to add two? I used one but a little more wouldn't hurt. Joe, thank you for the red wine suggestion, I will try that next time. Did you use one or two talbespoons of the aniseeds?
