KOULOURAKIA 🌀 . Fragrant with orange zest and mastica it’s the perfect accompaniment to your coffee ☕️. I must inform you, when testing my recipe for my cooking class I made them by hand beating the butter and sugar with just a wooden spoon. The result was far better than what I get using and electric mixer. So if you’ve got the patience give it a go and make your koulourakia the way our grandmothers did 🙏. 500g room temp unsalted butter. 7 cups plain flour. 4 egg. 2 cups caster sugar. 1 tbsp vanilla extract. 1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice. 1 tbsp baking powder. ½ tsp baking soda. Zest of 3 oranges. 1/2 tsp ground mastica. Egg wash: combination of eggs and milk whisked together. Cream butter and sugar with your wooden spoon or stand mixer till nice and fluffy or pale in colour. Add the eggs beat very well till combined. Add 1 cup of flour into the butter and sugar mixture and incorporate well. In a seperate glass or bowl combine orange juice, zest, vanilla, mastica, baking powder and soda and stir well until it fizzes pouring it into your bowl. Stir to combine then add the remainder of the flour mixing well until a soft dough forms. The dough will seem sticky in the bowl but is workable in your hands. Allow the dough to rest for 30 mins covered in glad wrap before creating different shapes. Preheat your oven to 170C. Use a heaped tablespoon of dough to roll out your shapes and once they have been formed, brush with egg wash and bake at 170C fan forced for approx. 20mins or until golden. Note: be mindful of the thickness of your shapes. Thin koulorakia cook quicker and will likely dry out whilst they bake. The goal is for them to be soft in the centre. Yield: approximately 40-50 Koulourakia depending on the shapes you create. Happy baking! As always tag me if you use my recipe, I’d love to see your recreations. Lots of love, Mary. #maryskouzina #easter #greekeaster #bake #biscuits #koulourakia #delicious #food #greece #sweets #australia #love #recipes #recipe
