Leftover Recipe 1: Red Wine Biscuits

Red Wine Biscuits Recipe
Probably our most loved sweets this Fresher's! Got some leftover cooking wine? Why not try these biscuits! We made them for a mini-campaign on Food Waste which is a huge issue in Malta. These sweets lean over more towards the savory side and have a tangy, spicy taste. These biscuits were done in collaboration with the amazing Crumbs Bakes, who specialize in sustainable but economical food made from fair trade, local and seasonal ingredients!  Check them out on facebook. Enjoy!

Red Wine Biscuits bring all the Freshers to the stand.

Makes 2-1/2 to 3 dozen


2-1/2 cups all purpose flour, 
1/3 cup sugar

1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1-1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup dry red wine
coconut oil 
sugar to sprinkle on top

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and pepper. Make a well in the center and add the vegetable oil and wine. Mix thoroughly and refrigerate for about 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

To form the biscuits, pinch off 1-inch balls of dough and gently roll into a small log about 1/2-inch in diameter. Bring the ends together to form a circle and pinch to close.

Place the formed biscuits on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush with the coconut oil and sprinkle with sugar on top. Bake for 20 - 30 minutes until solid and slightly crisp on the outside. Note: These cookies do not really brown, so test them after about 15 minutes and time them according to your personal taste.

Cool on wire racks and store in an airtight container.

  2. Hi,
    The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not disappoint me as much as this particular one.Funny New Year Quotes I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I truly thought you would probably have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something that you could possibly fix if you were not too busy searching for attention.
