My brother-in-law and family came back to the United States to visit after four years of being away. They live in Guam, which is halfway around the world from us. My sister-in-law, Liz, is Greek, so my younger daughter and I made her some koulourakia. Koulorakia are lightly sweetened cookies or biscuits -- they seem to me a slightly softer version of Italian biscotti.
I went online and used a recipe from food.com, http://greek.food.com/recipe/sesame-greek-easter-cookies-koulourakia-4313. I halved the recipe and made over 50 3-inch cookies.
|I used a chopstick as my ruler to make each cookie.|
After 12 minutes at 375 degrees F, the cookies were lightly browned and done. Liz declared them, "perfect."
