DIRECTIONS

  • Mix the flour with the olive oil into crumbs.
  • Dissolve the sugar to 1/2 cup of ouzo and the baking ammonia to a little more of ouzo.
  • Mix the two previous liquids with the flour and put as much ouzo to make a firm dough.
  • Then its the difficult part. Knead the dough by hand in very little amounts in order to make the dough fluffy. Maybe it can be done in a food processor little by little.
  • When make the cookies. Pinch off small egg-size pieces of dough and roll them under the palm of your hands into a 9-inch rope about the thickness of your finger. Bring the two ends together and pinch them closed.
  • Bake until done, 40 minutes or so. They are going to be white and very crispy.
