Greek Cookie Recipe?

Question by ♥ ♥Be Happi♥ ♥: Greek Cookie Recipe?
Someone at work went to a local Greek Festival and brought in some Greek Cookies. They were wonderful, sort of like a shortbread, not dry, not too sweet. They were in a semi braided shape, long, about 2 inches in length.

I would love to have the recipe if anyone has it.

Thank you!

It was probably these

GREEK KOULOURAKIA COOKIES

1/2 lb. butter (no butter)
1 c. yellow Crisco
1 c. orange juice or milk
6 eggs
2 3/4 c. sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. vanilla
Flour to make soft dough and don’t stick

Shape cookies in twist. Brush with beaten egg yolk and sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Now that’s Greek way you can just frost the cookies also. Bake 375, 12-15 minutes. Makes a lot.

    Yes! I have a recipe for the most yummy cookie ever. You need walnuts, pecans, cookie dough ice cream, biscuit mix, and anal gu. You first take take two cups of buiscut mix and add water. Mix thoroughly. Pick the cockie dough out ought of the cookie dough ice cream, appox. 1/2 cup. Take 1/2 cup of pecans and walnuts and the dough and mix together. Then, get a plumber and take of your briches. Bend over and place the plum over your brown eye. Pump rapidly! A gravy like substance will begin to ooze. Fill a shot glass full of this anal gu and mix all of the ingredients. Bake on high at 200 degrees for 16 min. Remove from oven and then place the plum on your brown eye once again and pump rapidly until you get 1/5 of a shot glass full of anal gu. Put on top of your cookies as icing!

    Congrats you now have a Greek cookie! Thank me later.

    May be you had kourabiethes (the Greek Shortbread or Christmas Shortbread), the cookies are into a crescent or round shape and dusted with icing sugar on top. Here is the recipe.

    < <<<<<<< Kourabiethes >>>>>>>> Makes 24

    250g unsalted butter
    1/2 cup icing suger, sifted
    1 egg yolk
    1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    1 tablespoon brandy
    3/4 cup roasted hazelnutes, finely chopped
    1 teaaspoon baking powder
    3 cups plain flour, sifted
    1 cup icing sugar, for garnish

    1) Preheat oven to 180 degree C. Beat bbutter and sugar ina small mixing bowl until light and creamy.
    2) Add egg yolk, beat well, then add vanilla essence and brandy, combine well.
    3) Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl; add nuts, baking powder and flower. Work quickly using hands to mix ingredients together to form a soft dough. Do not knead.
    4) Shape 2 tablespoons of mixture at a time into a crescent shape, repeat with the remaining mixture.
    5) Place crescents onto ungreased biscuit tray about 4 cm apart. Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly golden. Romve from oven, let cool on tray.
    6) When the cookies are cool, dust crescents liberally with icing sugar. Serve shortbread with Greek coffee.

    Note: If the mixture is too soft to handle, use lightly floured hands to shape dough into crescents, or you may put the dough into the refrigerator for 15 to 30 minutes then the dough would be cooler and easily be handled. (you actually can fix it in any shape you like). You may substitute roasted almonds or walnuts for hazelnuts in this recips if liked.
