I've seen these cookies posted on Culinary Saint's blog which the word 'wine' simply got my attention.. Since the post doesn't have much of explaination,so I kind of followed through the recipe using my own common sense..
The method is dead simple while the taste appeared to be interesting ! It's slightly sweet and crispy, yet there's something about it that couldn't be explained.. And I decided to call it differently from the original,'sesame wine rusks' because I found the texture ( of what I got) is more like a cookie than a rusk..
In my opinion, this is another interesting recipe worth your try !
300 g self raising flour
75 ml red wine
75 ml canola oil
5 tbsp vegetable shortening
1/4 cup sugar
1 scant tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup sesame seeds
Mix all ingredients but the sesame seeds in a bowl, knead the dough very well and then make dough into small rings (6 -7 cm diameter) or any other shape or size you like and finally dip them into the sesame seeds (on one side only).
Then place them onto a baking tray and bake them in a preheated oven at 190 degrees Celsius for 25-30 minutes.Remove from the oven, let them cool on wire rack.
