Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 1
Categories: Cookies / Desserts

2  C.  olive oil or Wesson
3/4  C.  sugar
3/4  C.  orange juice
1/4  C.  brandy
7 1/2  C.  sifted flour
2  Tsp.  baking powder
1  Tsp.  soda
    --FOR THE SYRUP:--
2  c.  honey
2  c.  sugar
2  c.  water

Beat together first 4 ingredients. Sift flour, baking powder and soda 3 times. Add the sifted dry ingredients to the oil mixture 1 cup at a time and knead gently. Pinch off small portions of dough the size of an egg and form into little patties. Roll them to make oblong rolls. Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake in moderate oven for 30 minutes. Boil honey, sugar and water for 5 minutes. Pour syrup over cookies in a deep pan. Allow to soak for 15 minutes. Take them out of the syrup and place on a large platter. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts and cinnamon. Makes 40. I like to put each one of my cookies in a silver cupcake paper and then sprinkle with the nuts and cinnamon. These are a traditional Christmas sweets.
