    ok koulouria are way different than kourabiedes :)
    that ring shaped you referred to is a koulouri,traditional as well.but kourabiedes are way dif.

    Hi – I’m wondering if anyone can help me. There’s a Greek ring-shaped butter cookie with sesame seeds (and sometimes almonds were added in) that my grandmother used to make when we were kids, that she always referred to as something that sounded like ‘kloothia’ or ‘kloothya.’ I doubt that’s the spelling of it – is it ‘koulouria’ or ‘kourabiedes’ or ‘koulourakie’ the word that she meant? And is it pronounced ‘kloothya’? Thanks for any help you can give me.

  17. livezakynthos says:

    Sprinkle with sesame seeds and you get traditional paximadi! :)  Hope you like our video too

    I miss my YiaYia Thanks!!

    I’ve made koulourakia’s since I was a kid and now I make them with my children. I love how she makes them by melting the butter and kneading it all together. The only thing different I do different is I add about 1 Tblsp of brandy. YUM. Thanks Yaya Irene!

  20. speedstick77 says:

    This is the most priceless video. Thank you for sharing. I grew up with these cookies. As kids we shortened the name to “rocks”. As she said, they were sprinkled with sesame seeds. Anise flavor was substituted for vanilla in my family. be careful! Anise extyract is very strong.

    This is a wonderful video. I lost my recipe that was given to me by the mother of one of my Greek students in Astoria many years ago. Thanks so much! These are my favorite cookies of all time. They go with everything and last a long time. I once ate nothing but these over a 4th of July weekend back in the 80′s~! Opa!
