Greek Easter Cookies RecipeUnlike the other Christian Churches, Greek Easter is this weekend. You will find Easter cookies in all the houses these days. They're easy to make and a nice accompaniment for your coffee. You can make them into whatever shape you want, but I have shown the most traditional in the photo at the bottom of the post. You might also like to check out the recipe for Greek Easter Bread (Tsoureki) that I previously posted.

Ingredients

1 kg soft flour
4 medium size eggs at room temperature
350g sugar
350g butter at room temperature
60ml orange juice
3 tablespoons brandy
30g baking powder
Grated rind from 1 orange

For the egg wash

1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water and a pinch of vanilla essence

Preparation

Beat the butter and sugar really well in the mixer.

Add the eggs one at a time and continue beating for 4 minutes.

Add the orange rind, orange juice and brandy and continue beating for another minute.

Sift the flour in a large bowl and then sift in the baking powder.

Make a hole in the centre and pour in the mixture from the mixer.

Combine them all gently – do not overhandle this dough as the butter will start to come out.

Form the dough into a ball and remove small portions and shape them into cookies – you can see the most common forms in the photo at the bottom.

Arrange them in buttered trays and brush them with the eggwash.

Bake them in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes or until they turn golden brown.


Eat and Enjoy!
