For 4 Dozen(s)

For the Cookies:

  • 4 cups plus 2 tablespoons 00 or all purpose flour, divided
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 5 large eggs, divided
  • 3 packets Vanillina Powder, or 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup granulated sugar, plus more for sprinkling
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together 4 cups of the flour and baking powder. Set aside.
  3. In another mixing bowl combine 4 of the eggs, the vanilla, the sugar and the oil. Whisk for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Sift the flour and baking powder into the wet ingredients and mix with a spoon until fully combined and a soft dough forms.
  5. Divide the dough in half and separate into two bowls.
    *For best results I recommend using a kitchen scale and weighing the dough.
  6. In one bowl, add the remaining 2 Tablespoons of flour and work it in with your hands.
  7. In the other bowl, add the 2 Tablespoons of cocoa powder and work it in with your hands.
  8. Take a Teaspoon of each dough and roll them both into ropes about 3-4 inches long. Twist them and join the two ends to form a ring or connect them at one end and twist to make long twists.
  9. Place your cookies about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.
  10. Whisk the remaining egg in a bowl and brush the cookies with the egg wash. Sprinkle with granulated sugar and bake for 12 minutes or until the bottoms of the cookies have slightly browned.
