Rosquillas de Vino - Wine Ring Cookies

These little anise-flavored rings and wine are light and delicious cookies. They are eaten accompanied by a glass of Anise liqueur, but they are equally delicious with a cup of hot tea or coffee for breakfast or at tea time.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 24-36 cookies


  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp anise extract
  • 6 cups flour
  • granulated sugar for topping


This recipe yields 2-3 dozen small rings.

Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.

Using a hand mixer, combine sugar, vegetable oil, vegetable shortening and baking powder together in a large mixing bowl. Add white wine and anise extract and mix well. Add flour a cup at a time. Mixture will seem dry or crumbly. You may want to use your hand to mix together the dough as you add the last 2 cups of flour.

Take out a small amount of dough and roll into a rope about 1/3” thick on an un-floured cutting board. Cut into pieces about 4 inches long and join the two ends to form a doughnut shape or ring.

Carefully place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake 15-18 minutes or until they become a golden color. Be careful not to burn the bottoms!

Let cool about 10 minutes, so the cookies do not fall apart as you lift them off with a spatula. While still warm, place in sugar to coat the tops.

Although these cookies are made throughout the year, they are also popular at Christmas time. For another wonderfully rich and tasty Spanish Christmas cookie, try Polvorones. To learn about Christmas Sweets in Spain, Spanish Christmas Sweets.

Wine Ring Cookies, Member NeydaMae

We make these every year for Christmas, taught to me by a Spanish lady 65 years ago. We put a cup of wine in the dough and also roll the hot rings in half water and half wine, then roll in sugar. Our family has never had a Christmas with out them.
