Koulourakia (Greek Biscuits)



Have a go at making these yummy Greek biscuits, I DID ! They are the best "dip-it-in milk biscuits" for young and old. They remind me of having breakfast in Italy, we just had hot milky coffee with biscuits. This batch makes lots so you needs a helping hand. ENJOY !

250g unsalted butter, softened
1 ½ cups caster sugar
5 eggs
2 teas vanilla essence or 1 pkt vanilla sugar
1 x 300ml cream
1 tab Brandy or 1 Orange or Lemon rind
6 cups of S/R Flour, sifted
1 egg beaten, extra
¼ cup sugar, extra

Preheat oven 180oC (170oC fan forced) and line oven trays with baking paper. With electric beater, beat butter and sugar until well combined. Add eggs one at a time and beat between each addition until creamy. Add vanilla essence or vanilla sugar and beat again. Add brandy and beat again. With dough attachment on your mixture, mix through 4 cups of the flour until well combined, adding the other 2 cups if required. Shape dough into 22cm x 5mm strips, bring together to form a twist and place on lined trays. Brush tops of biscuits with beaten egg and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake at 180oC (170oC fan forced) for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
