Traditional Greek Easter Cookies {modern version}

Hi everyone!!

Easter is around the corner and I made some Traditional Greek Easter Cookies {modern version} with my daughter this weekend and I think you should try them, too 🙂

These Easter cookies are crunchy, yummy and so easy to make! As far back as I can remember, I always made {and ate} Easter cookies with my mom. I always like to make different shapes and wait for them to bake, so I can admire my creations. Nowadays, I enjoy doing the same with my daughter! She loves cookies a lot, so it was not hard to convince her to help me out with these ones.

let’s start!

Traditional Greek Easter Cookies {modern version}


  1. 750gr of plain flour
  2. 400gr of butter (I used Lurpak)
  3. 250gr of icing sugar ( or brown sugar if you want them extra crunchy)
  4. 2 eggs
  5. 1tsp of baking powder
  6. 1 egg for brushing and color
  7. optional: add some lemon or orange zest, or even cinnamon!

First, use cold butter and cut it into small pieces. Add all ingredients in the mixing bowl and mix well till you get a manageable dough.

*If it’s soft and sticky, place it in the fridge for a little bit to rest.

Make different shapes of cookies and place them in the tray. Use some grease-proof paper if you like. In a small bowl  beat one egg with a bit of water. Then, with the help of a brush we spread the mixture on top of the cookies. This will give them a lovely, golden color. Bake at 160-170 C until they get that golden color.

To keep the Traditional Greek Easter Cookies {modern version} fresh and to last longer, store them in a tin.

So, for the modern version, I dipped the cookies in melted chocolate and sprinkles!
