Another non-sweet wine cookie from Baking Chez Moi. I remember the Olive Oil and Wine Cookies we made in the past, they were not my favorite. I was willing to buy the white wine for these but not the Pastis which is an anise flavored liqueur. Steph helped me pick Limoncello from my available liqueurs. This is an easy cookie to put together as it required one bowl, a plus. I patted the dough into a 7-inch circle and used my bench scrapper to cut them into little squares. I tossed them into the sugar and baked. My first batch I baked for full 30 minutes and they burned. The second batch I baked for 20 minutes which I thought was much better. The choice of sweet wine and Limoncello worked in my favor and I thought these were much better than the other wine cookies we made. My husband liked them too and thought they tasted great with the wine.

To see what others made this week head over to Tuesdays with Dorie.
