Koulourakia (Greek Easter Cookies)Dawn Mikesell
Koulourakai (pronounced koo-loo-RAH-kee-ah) are traditional Greek cookies typically made the week of Easter. These are a soft, crunchy cookie characterized by a butter base, orange flavor, and a shiny glaze. It’s almost like biscotti’s softer cousin and oh so good.
I love how they kind of crunch when you bite into them, but on the inside it’s kind of like a cross between a cookie and a cake. I think that’s the best way to describe the texture. It’s something you’re gonna have to make yourself and experience. And the flavor is yummy too. There’s a slight creamy orange honey flavor and it’s not too sweet either.
So, I hope you give these a try soon and make them part of your Easter this year.
