Classic Italian biscuit recipe passed down from my great grandmother (nona) to my grandmother (noni) to my dad and now to me. These are savory taralli, you can also add cracked black pepper to taste if desired.
Dissolve yeast in warm water in a bowl.
Combine flour, wine, oil, fennel seeds, and salt in a large stand mixer with a dough hook attachment. Knead on low speed. Add yeast mixture slowly. Continue to mix until a smooth ball is formed and dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl, 3 to 5 minutes.
Remove dough from the bowl; knead into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and let rest for 4 to 5 minutes.
Bring a large pot of water to boil over high heat.
Cut the dough into 2-inch cross sections; roll into 1/2-inch-diameter “tubes.” Cut tubes lengthwise into 1/4-inch cross sections. Roll each from the center out; fold ends over one another.
Boil taralli in the hot water in groups of 10 until they rise to the top, about 1 minute. Remove with a slotted spoon. Continue with remaining taralli. Let dry for 4 hours.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place dried taralli onto baking sheets.
Bake in the preheated oven, flipping as needed, until golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes.

The best flavour of the flour could make a real deal to your bread. Different makers do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal bread , which not always getting bigger as well as clear bread.
To make this in a breadmaker , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be make in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can start it yesterday , then finish it off the next day.
