Wine Biscuits with Rosemary and Pepper

I've wanted to try this recipe for quite a while and finally had the perfect occasion to make it for.  I love these biscuits!  They are a wonderful appetizer!  A little sweet and a little savory at the same time.
I found the recipe in Pam Anderson's cookbook The Perfect Recipe for Losing Weight & Eating Great.  You can cut the dough into small circles, but I happened to have a small flower cookie cutter that I used.  And they perfectly fit into my olive tray!  Serve them up with a little goat cheese - yum!

Wine Biscuits with Rosemary and Pepper

1/2 cup dry red wine
1 cup flour ( I used unbleached)
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Pour wine into a saucepan over medium-high heat.  Bring to a boil and keep boiling until wine reduces by half (2-3 minutes).

Put oven racks to upper and lower thirds of oven.  Preheat to 325 degrees.  Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Combine flour, sugar, pepper, rosemary, salt and baking powder in food processor.  Stir oil into wine and add mixture to dry ingredients.  Process until dough starts to come together.  Place dough on lightly floured surface and roll out to about 1/8 inch thickness.  Use a cookie cutter or something round about 1 1/2 inches across to cut out dough.  Place cut-outs on prepared cookie sheets.  Roll and cut out scraps too.  You should get about 3 dozen small rounds or cut-outs.

Bake for 30 minutes, until crisp and golden.  Cool completely on wire rack.  Can store in airtight container for up to a month.
Don't they sound yummy?  Now you have something new to take to your next party or just to save and nibble on a couple at a time with a glass of wine.  I notice the pics make them look a little golden brown - they actually have a more reddish color from the wine.

  1. Those really do sound yummy! I may have to "pin" this. LOL!

    Big you had me at wine size hugs to you! LOL!
    Love ya girlie.

  2. I absolutely love how you made these crackers to fit in the olive tray. I have a couple of them and am always looking for other ways to use them.

  3. These sound totally delicious. I love the flavor of rosemary, especially in breads, potatoes, or veggies.

    I definitely intend to try these, so I've "pinned" the recipe.

    Have a great day,
