Greek Must Cookies (Moustokouloura)

These cookies are a tasty accompaniment for your coffee or tea. They have the distinctive taste of must - which is taken from the pressed grapes before it is made into wine - and a hint of cinnamon. You can make them either soft or crispy, depending on your preference.


250g sugar
170g grape must
150g extra virgin olive oil
200g water
9g ammonium bicarbonate
9g cinnamon
1 kg soft flour
4g baking powder
4g soda powder


Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl to form a pliable dough, without over handling the dough.

Cover it with cling film and leave in the fridge to rest for 30 minutes.

On a slightly floured surface shape the dough into circular cookies (see photo) and place them in a shallow buttered oven dish.

If you want the moustokouloura to be soft, cover them with aluminium foil, making a few holes in the foil with a fork and keep them covered for 10 minutes after they have been baked.

If you want them to be crispy, then leave them uncovered.

In both cases bake them in a pre heated oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes.

Eat and Enjoy!
