Food Fare: Italian RecipesTichenilles

Pepper Biscuits/Cookies

Preheat oven to 375-degrees F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a bowl, mix together olive oil, water, fennel seed, salt and black pepper. Add flour and baking powder. Work the dough until oily and smooth. If the dough appears too sticky, add a bit more flour. Pinch off 2" pieces of dough. Flour hands and roll the dough pieces into cigar-shapes, approximately 8" in length. Form the dough lengths into "U" shapes, and then criss-cross to braid. Place dough braids on cookie sheets; brush each braid with beaten egg. Bake for forty minutes, rotating cookie sheets halfway through cooking time. Bake braids until golden in color, with crisp bottoms. Cool on a rack; serve.


Note: Tichenilles can be stored in a dry, air-tight container for up to one month.
