My son's favourite Easter cookie recipe is for traditional
Greek 'Koulourakia' (butter cookies). He's always loved joining me in the kitchen to help make (and eat) these cookies.
This recipe was shared with me years ago by a fantastic Greek Cypriot colleague whose tireless mum used to bake
these delicious rich butter cookies for the whole office - they were unbelievably moreish and it's fair to say there were never any left overs! We all loved the days when 'Greek Mum' was visiting!
One of the reasons we love these cookies so much is that they are not overly sweet - they taste a little bit like Italian biscotti. This makes them the perfect partner for a cup of tea or coffee and they are great for dunking!
My recipe here uses lemons, but it's just as tasty if you prefer the fresh tang of oranges or limes.
Traditionally, these cookies are sprinkled with sesame seeds before baking. As my son is allergic to sesame seeds, we sprinkle ours with a little granulated sugar instead which gives a lovely crunchy topping.
Makes 2 dozen totally yummy cookies
