With these Wine and aniseed ring-shaped biscuits I bring one of my favorite recipes for Christmas. I love the doughnuts and together with the mantecados and the hojaldrinas are probably my favourite Christmas sweets.

Almost always think that our Christmas sweetsour tradition of life, are complicated and difficult and that's why is much better to buy them. However it is not so. And with this recipe from wine and aniseed ring-shaped biscuits, you can see for yourself. In less than an hour and with your hands, without the need for any blender or mixer can do them at home.

You are only going to need a large bowl. For these recipes I always use mine of Slash Cooking, because I love not only by the beautiful ones that are, but because they have different sizes that always conform to what I need and this is perfect to be able to knead with your hands. They are English ceramic and the best thing is that the same serve that microwave oven (up to 230 degrees), so no changes by any.

My son helped me at home always to prepare them and loves to take the first to school and distribute them in class. This year even has led them wine and aniseed ring-shaped biscuits to some Professor made by him. Sure you will enjoy much preparing them with them if you have children at home.

I love the subtle flavor of anise. They do not wear nail, like many others because I prefer these doughnuts of wine and aniseed, and carried Sesame which gives them a unique crisp touch and that I love.
