1 1/2 c Olive oil
1/2 c Butter, unsalted
-(at room temperature)
1 c Beer
3/4 t Cinnamon, ground
1/4 t Ground cloves, ground
Orange peel (use the
-grated peel of one orange)
1 c Sugar
2 c Semolina, finely ground
6 c Flour
1/2 t Baking soda
1/2 t Baking powder
1 t Salt
1 1/2 c Sugar (for the syrup)
1 1/2 c Honey
1 c Water
1/2 c Walnuts, chopped

Put the olive oil, butter, beer, cinnamon, cloves, orange peel and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat until they are thoroughly blended.
Sift about one cup of flour with the baking soda, baking powder and salt and blend into the mixture. Add the semolina, a cup at a time, into the mixture.
Add the enough of the remaining flour, a cup at a time, until you get a rather firm dough (you may need a bit more or less than the amount mentioned in the ingredients list). Use your hands to do the mixing, as an electric mixer will be useless after the first two or three C of flour have been added.
Roll the dough into cylinders, about two inches long and one inch in diameter, flatten them with your hands, and place them on cookie sheets greased with a little olive oil. Bake at 350 degrees F. for half an hour. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool for about half an hour.
Make the syrup: mix the sugar, honey and water, and bring them to a boil. Cook on low heat for three minutes and skim off the foam that forms on top. Pour the hot syrup over the cookies, sprinkle them with the chopped walnuts and let them soak overnight.
