Easter Cookies " Koulourakia Pascalina"


These traditional sweet cookies are found in every home at Easter time. Formed into cookies or Ď Augoulesí, they are also given to friends and relatives as part of their ĎEaster Baskets


2 cups butter 2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 cup sugar 1 tsp. vanilla
4 egg yolks 1 tsp. grated orange rind - optional
1/2 cup milk or fresh orange juice 1 egg - beaten
8 cups flour  

Cream the butter and the sugar. Add the egg yolks one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the milk, vanilla, orange rind and 2 cups of flour and the baking powder mixing it all well together. Gradually add the rest of the flour. You will have to work with your hands as the dough will get rather stiff.

Break off small portions about the size of walnuts or golf balls and roll them into ropes about the size of a pencil. These can be arranged into circles or coiled into an ĎNí shape.

Place your cookies on an ungreased baking sheet and brush the tops with the beaten egg. Bake at 350F for about 18-20 minutes.

Susieís Note: Feel free to get creative using your Easter eggs too. Wrap a rope of dough around them so they can be baked into the cookie itself these are called ĎAugoulesí. My mom used to coil dough around an egg and left a small piece straight so it resembled a flat snail and had two whole cloves pushed in for eyes. Anything goes.
