Koulourakia Greek Easter Biscuits
Here is the recipe for Koulourakia Greek Easter Biscuits. This recipe will make a lot of biscuits, enough to last the whole Easter period and plenty more even to give to friends and family. This is my grandmother’s recipe. Her recipe is my favourite because it makes for the most buttery buscuits I have ever tasted. To make these biscuits, you will need to gather some friends or family to help you with the rolling of the dough. This is what will take the most time. It is also a lot of fun getting together and shaping the dough into various designs. You can get really creative or you can stay with the classical designs such as the braids.
