Christmas Doughnuts in Southern Spain (A Tradition) Feliz Navidad

In Southern Spain it's a tradition during the Christmas season to eat doughnuts called
ROSCO'S NAVIDENOS. 


ROSCO'S NAVIDENOS

1 liter of olive oil

2 kg of flour
1/4 litro of Aguardiente
1/4 litro of orange juice
1/4 litro of white wine
1/4 kg of sugar
1 stick of cinnamon
150 grams of anis seeds
rind of one lemon and one orange
2 tablespoons of baking powder

Fry oil with half of the anise seeds along with lemon and orange rinds. Heat cinnamon stick in a pan and then grind it up. Add to the mixture. Strain the oil and add flour, Aguardiente, white wine, orange juice, baking powder and sugar. Once all the ingredients are mixed together knead the dough into a tight ball. Form the dough into doughnut circles. Place doughnuts on a baking sheet and bake 20-25 minutes at an oven temperature of 175 degrees.


Use the remaining anise seeds to add to hot water. The anise seeds and hot water should be like a herbal tea. Dip each doughnut into the tea then ice each doughnut with a powdered sugar icing.


Let the doughnuts cool and enjoy a true Spanish Christmas treat!
