A wine cookie recipe (or wine cookies recipe) for the Passover / Pesach festival adds an exotic flavor to any Passover / Pesach meal. A wine cookie recipe in the Sephardic-style will have many versions depending on the country and community where Sephardim reside and on the particular wine cookies recipe developed by individual Sephardic families. Sephardic Jews or Sephardim (alternate spelling: Sefardim; plural form of "Sephardi" or "Sefardi"; descriptive form: "Sephardic" or "Sefardic") are Jews whose ancestors came from either Spain and/or Portugal. Since the late 15th century, Sephardim have migrated to other countries. Sephardic Italian-Jews, Greek-Jews, Turkish-Jews, and Spanish-Jews will create wine cookie recipes for the Passover / Pesach festival, and the following recipe for wine cookies is but one example of this recipe.
"Masa" means "dough" in Spanish, "de" means "of" in Spanish, and of course, "vino" means "wine" in Spanish.
