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.

Traditional Greek Easter Cookies {modern version}

ingredients

  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!

Instructions:

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.

Storage:

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!
