DIRECTIONS

  • Sift the flour into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and add melted butter, eggs, salt, sugar and vanilla. Dissolve baking ammonia in the milk and add that to the flour mixture, too.
  • Knead the ingredients together well until you have a soft, pliable dough.
  • Shape dough into shapes of your choosing. 'S' shapes, braids and snails are popular in Greece.
  • Place on a greased cookie sheet, or parchment-lined or silpat and brush with beaten egg white.
  • Bake at 375F (180C) for 20 minutes.
  • Note: If you can find a 'soft' flour, suitable for pastry-making, your koulourakia will be more authentic.
