Moustokouloura (Wine Must Cookies)

3 1/2 c All-purpose flour

-plus extra for kneading 2 ts Baking soda

1 tb Freshly ground cinnamon

1 tb Freshly ground cloves

1/4 c Mild olive oil

2 tb Honey

1/2 c Petimezi

-(Greek wine must syrup) -OR- Italian vino cotto -OR- Honey 1/2 Orange; (grated zest)

1 c Orange juice

Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and cloves into a large bowl, making a well in the center. In a smaller bowl, beat the olive oil with the honey, petimezi, grated orange zest, and 1/2 the orange juice and pour into the well. Mix together to make a dough, adding the remaining orange juice as necessary. Turn onto a floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes until the dough is smooth but not stiff. Cover with a cloth and leave to relax for 30 minutes or longer. Break off pieces of dough, about 2 tablespoonfuls each, and roll into snakes about 1/2-inch in diameter. Press the two ends together, forming oval wreaths, and place on an oiled or non-stick baking sheet. Bake in an oven preheated to 375 F for 10-15 minutes- until they are brown and crunchy, but not too hard.
