Make a picnic finger food - Grissini with white wine


Place the flour, olive oil, wine, and salt in a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook. Mix the ingredients on low until the batter is well combined and smooth. If the dough is a little dry, gradually add 2 tablespoons of water and continue mixing until the dough is smooth. Sprinkle a bowl with extra flour. Put the dough in a bowl and leave it at room temperature for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 200°C and line a large baking tray with baking paper. Divide the dough into 14 pieces (about 40 g) and roll each piece into a thin stick.

Fill a large, deep, heavy-bottomed nonstick pot with 2 inches of water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and cook the chops for 1-2 minutes on each side. Then remove them from the pan and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Immediately sprinkle the seeds with fennel seeds, poppy seeds and sesame seeds to help them stick to the dough. Bake the delicious breadsticks for 35-40 minutes or until golden. You can serve them with any cookie you like.
