Wine Cookies

This is a recipe from my Italian Grandmothers cookbook. We had these often around the holidays and they are sooooooo good. They are a lot of work, but worth it.
I'm going to post in the odd order the recipe was written by her.
2 cups white wine
1 cup sugar
1 ts. cinnamon
pinch of ginger
Boil these ingredients together a couple of minutes until sugar is disolved. Cool
*must be cool!!
Add 4 eggs and enough flour to make a soft dough -about 7 cups.
Roll dough into long strips as big around as your thumb. Cut pieces 1 1/2 inch long
Fry in about 1 cup oil until golden brown. When cool dip in honey or sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Makes a ton (?)
