Taralli

Ingredients

  • 2¾ cup (335 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ⅓ cup (90 ml) white wine
  • ⅓ cup (80 ml) olive oil
  • 3 Tablespoons water
  • eggwash, of 1 large egg

Directions

  1. Add the flour, salt, wine, olive oil, and water to the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
  2. Select Variable 8 and pulse about 15 to 20 times until the dough comes together, stopping to scrape the sides as needed.
  3. Add a teaspoon or two of water, if needed. Be careful not to overwork the dough.
  4. Remove the dough from the container (it may not have formed a ball, but remove the dough pieces), knead together a few times on a lightly floured surface until springy, then shape the dough into a ball.
  5. Cover with a damp towel.
  6. Pull scant Tablespoon-sized pieces from the ball, roll into sticks, then loop into a circle (pressing the ends together to close). Place them into boiling water, then remove once they float to the top. Let them dry slightly on a towel.
  7. Brush with egg wash. Bake at 400° Fahrenheit (200° Celsius) for approximately 25-30 minutes, or until golden.
