  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp powder cinnamon
  • 2 cups (500 ml) lukewarm water
  • 1 ½ cup (375 ml) olive oil for frying
  • honey or sugar (according to taste) for topping


Place flour in a large bowl and make a well in the center.

Add oil, orange juice, grappa or vodka, salt and cinnamon.

Mix together and knead for 5 minutes, adding a little warm water to avoid sticking, until dough is soft and ready to cut.

Cut dough to pieces to the size of a small orange. Roll out each piece to round pies, sized apprx. 1 cm. thick and 13-15 cm. in diameter.

Deep fry the pies making sure each pie is under oil at all times, pressing with a fork if necessary.

Remove from oil once pie has risen and taken a gold brown color.

Place each pie on kitchen paper to absorb excess oil and continue to fry until all pies are used.

Serve warm with honey according to taste.
