Italian Egg Biscuits

Recipe from Linda Lee.

The recipe is from Longano, Italy. These are usually eaten with wine, or dunked in coffee.

12 eggs
25 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup liquid (1 ounce whiskey, the rest milk)
the zest of 1 orange
the juice of 1 orange
the zest of 1 lemon
5 teaspoons baking powder
11 cups all-purpose flour
1-2 teaspoons vanilla
egg white, optional

Preheat oven to 350 - 375F. Grease cookie sheets. Beat eggs with sugar. Add liquids. Beat in dry ingredients. Roll dough into "snakes" and then pinch to form a bagel like shape. Glaze with egg white if desired. Bake approximately 20 - 30 minutes.
