Masa di Vino (Passover Wine Cookies)


Each holiday has it’s special flavors and textures.  One of the special treats we prepare for Pesah is “masa di vino”, a wine cookie with a delightful and unique  taste and texture.  They are easy to make and freeze well.  Give them a try!

Ingredients:

1 C oil

3/4 C sweet wine

3/4 C sugar

1 egg

2 C Passover cake meal

1 C chopped nuts (optional)

1/2 C Passover potato starch

Mix sugar, oil and wine well.  Add egg and dry ingredients.

Take walnut sized pieces of dough. Roll into a ball.  Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Flatten by hand. With tines of a fork, press each cookie to produce a design.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Enjoy!

  1. Dear Bendichos,
    Do you use red or white wine for the masa di vino cookies? I think my grandma did white.
    The ashuplados look amazing.
