Almond Taralli

PositivelyBeauty's picture
  Dry white wine 170 Milliliter
  Extra virgin olive oil 130 Milliliter
  Sea salt 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Chili flakes 2⁄3 Teaspoon
  Freshly ground pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Almonds 3 1⁄2 Ounce, chopped finely (100 Grams)
  All purpose flour 14 Ounce (400 Grams, Plain Flour)
  Cream of tartar 2 Teaspoon
  Bicarbonate of soda 1⁄2 Teaspoon

In a large bowl, pour the extra-virgin olive oil, white wine and salt, and mix with a fork.
Add chilli flakes, pepper and almonds, and mix.
Add the flour in 3-4 times, always mixing with a fork. When the mixture becomes compact, knead for a couple of minutes until it forms a dough.
Cover the dough with cling film, or with a plate, and let it rest for 30 minutes in a cool place (the fridge is fine).
Preheat the oven (static) to 200° C (390° F).
Take a small piece of dough (the size of a cherry) and roll it into a thin cylinder; join the two ends of the cylinder together in a ring, pressing them together. Keep making taralli this way, then place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake for about 25 minutes, depending on your oven and the size of the taralli.
When the taralli are baked they’ll be a light golden colour; transfer them onto a rack and let them cool.
Store in a tin box or airtight container for 2 weeks, if you can – mine disappear way more quickly than that…
