Cookies with grape must

November 5th, 2014 § 0

Before ending the grape season, I bought seedless grapes from the market, to make a grape must cookie.

Baking soda is the primary ingredient of this recipe. It is used in recipes that contain an acidic ingredient, like grape must.

It gives tenderness to the soda cookies and when it is sealed in a container, has an indefinite shelf life.

Because of the grape must, these cookies are dark brown in colour.

  • 250 ml grape must (roughly press 500 gr seedless grapes)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 250 ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • 1 t. soda
  • 1 1/2 t. cinnamon
  • 1 t. cloves
  • 1/4 cup cognac or brandy
  • 1 1/2 cup flour

Combine grape must, olive oil, soda, sugar and honey.

Stir cinnamon, cloves and cognac.

Sift together flour, baking powder.

Slowly add sifted flour to grape juice mixture. Add cognac mixture and mix until you get a soft dough.

Using pieces of dough, roll snakes and press the two ends together forming oval wreaths.

You can shape the cookies with a piping bag.

Place them on a parchment covered baking sheet.

Bake at 180° C for 30 minutes or until they are done.
