                         Karen Mintzias
    3 1/2   c            All-purpose flour
                         -plus extra for kneading
    2       ts           Baking soda
    1       tb           Freshly ground cinnamon
    1       tb           Freshly ground cloves
      1/4   c            Mild olive oil
    2       tb           Honey
      1/2   c            Petimezi
                         -(Greek wine must syrup)
                         -OR- Italian vino cotto
                         -OR- Honey
      1/2                Orange -- (grated zest)
    1       c            Orange juice
   Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and cloves into a large
   bowl, making a well in the center.  In a smaller bowl, beat the olive oil
   with the honey, petimezi, grated orange zest, and 1/2 the orange juice and
   pour into the well.  Mix together to make a dough, adding the remaining
   orange juice as necessary.
   Turn onto a floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes until the dough
   is smooth but not stiff.  Cover with a cloth and leave to relax for 30
   minutes or longer.
   Break off pieces of dough, about 2 tablespoonfuls each, and roll into
   snakes about 1/2-inch in diameter.  Press the two ends together, forming
   oval wreaths, and place on an oiled or non-stick baking sheet.  Bake in an
   oven preheated to 375 F for 10-15 minutes- until they are brown and
   crunchy, but not too hard.
