As a Greek that is very familiar with the cuisine and these cookies, I can say it's the best recipe! Bravo!
A very traditional Greek cookie. They are pretty easy to make, just roll/shape carefully , as the prettier you shape it the better it will look when it's done. (I need more practice!)
My cookies only needed to bake for 10-15 minutes- I didn't want the bottoms to be too dark. Also- I had no sesame seeds, so I used white sanding sugar for a delicate touch.
I thought these were very good, not too sweet, and easy to make. I might decrease the baking powder a touch the next time as the cookies might be a bit more dense (personal preference only), but even as written they certainly were very good. Thank you, Nico, for taking the time to share this recipe.
Very yummy. My son and I made these for part of his 2nd grade history fair project. Although he did not end up winning a prize for his project, the judges voted unanimously for these cookies as their favorite food out of all the projects! He is very proud of his ribbon! I followed the recipe exactly, just cut it in half in the interest of time.
Very simple and delicious! Great for dunking in your coffee. Thanks Nico!
These Greek cookies, also known as "koulourakias" are simply amazing. I make them every year around Christmas and have since I was a child! My 3 grown children love them and they are not too sweet...just perfect for dipping in coffee! Thank you for publishing this wonderful cookie recipe! (I omit the sesame seeds as I always preferred them plain, although many relatives have added anise, lemon or orange rind or the sesame seeds).
Efxaristo jia tin nostimi sindaji !
Was a very easy recipe ! The only problem i had was to get them in the traditional shape and i add orange extract not vanilla it tastes a way more fresh ,vanilla makes them to heavy since butter is the main ingredient than you very much ! I madesome with sasame and some without .I added a pic and they look realllyy yummy !
What a great cookie for dunking into coffee or tea! I am not much of a baker and found this recipe easy. Had a little hard time "braiding" but worked it out!
