Greek Koulourakia recipe ~ Making the Perfect Twists
This article is all about making Koulourakia (κουλουράκια), a delicately crisp butter cookie that’s traditionally formed in the shape of an “S” or a twist.
Our focus is on how to work the dough and roll out beautiful twists, since this is the trickiest of all the shapes. Come into our kouzina and see how it’s done!First, we couldn’t help but lick the bowl (and beater) but we don’t recommend you taste the batter like we did…there are raw eggs in there.
Save your appetite for the baked cookies. They’re worth waiting for!Roll out the dough to ¼-inch thickness and cut out into your favorite shapes like stars, angels, and candy canes.
Growing up we loved camel and tree shapes. Transfer cut-outs to your cookie sheet, brush them with beaten egg, and sprinkle with colored sugar.
