Put all the ingredients together in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a hook attachment and knead well.
Make the dough into a ball, wrap it in cling wrap and put it in the fridge to rest for 15 minutes.
Then divide the dough in small pieces and roll them into ropes about 1 cm (1/2”) thick. Cut these ropes into segments approximately 15 cm – 6” long. Join the ends of the segments by forming a drop-like shape and press lightly with your finger.
Coat the taralli with granulated sugar and put them on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°C – 355°F for 15-20 minutes.
