6 servings

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated pecorino
  • 1/4 cup sliced, blanched almonds
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, wine, salt and oil to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a floured board, and knead lightly until dough holds together. Can rest covered with a towel or plastic wrap for 10 minutes before rolling into ropes. Roll pieces of dough into a 1/4-inch thick rope, cut it into 4-inch long pieces, and form O-shaped doughnuts from each 4-inch length.

  • Preheat the oven to 340 degrees F.

  • In a medium pasta pot, bring 4 quarts of water to a boil. Drop each doughnut into the boiling water for 25 seconds, remove with a slotted spoon and place each on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 1/2 hour or longer for desired texture and doneness. While the doughnuts are still hot, dip each one into the pepper, the pecorino, or a mixture of the almonds and the rosemary, and allow to cool.
