Your party is sure to be sweet if you end the meal with these fragrant pastries.

Borrachuelos

Makes 35 pastries

Ingredients:

2/3 cup orange- and cinnamon-infused oil
2 tsp. sesame seeds
1 tsp. anise seeds
3/4 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup orange juice
3 cups flour
1 cup oil for frying
1 cup honey
1/4 cup water
Powdered sugar

Preparation:

In a mixer, combine the orange- and cinnamon-infused oil, sesame seeds, anise seeds, dry white wine and orange juice. Add the flour one cup at a time.

Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead lightly (add more flour if necessary).

Wrap the dough in plastic and let it rest for 30 minutes.

Make 3/4" dough balls, then roll them out into ovals that measure about 4" x 2".

Heat the oil to about 350 degrees and fry the pastries until lightly browned. They will float to the top when done.

Drain the pastries on a paper towel to soak up the excess oil.

Heat the honey and water in a saucepan and simmer for about five minutes.

Dip each pastry in the honey-water mixture. Allow the excess to drip off before dipping them in powdered sugar.
