- In a KitchenAid Stand Mixer bowl, add the olive oil and the wine and mix the two. Add the flour and continue to mix until the flour and the liquids are completely amalgamated and the dough is firm.
- Cut a handful of the dough and pass it thru the pasta roller set at 3 until you have a flat and long strip of dough about three inches wide and ten inches long. Lay the strip on a wood board and with a ravioli cutter cut it in squares of 2 x 2 inches.
- With the teeth of a fork, puncture each square several times so that when you fry them they will not swell.
- Fry all the Cartellate until light golden.
- Place them in a plate lined with paper towels to absorb the excess oil. Set aside to cool.
- To serve... put one Cartellata in a serving plate and add on top a scoop of EV Olive Oil Gelato. Cover the Gelato with another Cartellata and garnish with a drizzle of Vin Cotto and a few drops of EV Olive Oil.
If you have extra Cartellate, they can be stored in an airtight container and will stay fresh and crispy for several months!
