Welcome back to Treat to Eat! This past weekend was Easter but also Greek Easter or also called the Orthodox Easter. My grandfather was originally from Greece so every year we celebrate Easter and Greek Easter. The two fall on the same day every four years. This year they fall on the same day. The food is so yummy and delicious. There is a wide variety of food. One recipe I will share that is always on the dinner table that is greek easter knots or Koulourakia. These are buttery, small cookies tied into twist. Here is the recipe:

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tsp vanilla
  • 3 2/3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • Egg Wash:
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbs milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare a sheet pan with a silpat or parchment paper.
  3. In the bowl of a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar.
  4. Add the vanilla and eggs and beat until fluffy.
  5. In a separate bowl combine the flour and baking powder.
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the butter and sugar.
  7. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead by hand a few minutes until you have a smooth dough.
  8. Break off pieces (about a rounded tablespoon) and roll it into a worm shape.
  9. Twist the two ends together (see pictures) and place on the sheet pan.
  10. When you have shaped all of the cookies, then beat the egg wash (the egg and milk) and lightly brush the tops of the cookies.
  11. Bake the cookies until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  12. Let them cool on a rack.

Stay tuned till next time. Thanks for reading! Comment if you try any of the recipes!
