Oriental cookies

Koulourakia

These cookies include a little bit of everything: motor development, geometric objects, weights and sweet flavors. Offer your child to weigh and mix the ingredients himself. Hold a modeling competition and have a laugh looking at your crooked creations!

Mash butter till its soft, add sugar and mix thoroughly; add eggs and milk. Mix baking powder with flour and combine with the butter mixture. Then add cinnamon, vanilla, bayberry, and anise. Knead the dough thoroughly until it’s quite firm. Try to touch the dough, if it’s not sticky it’s ready.

Roll out the dough with your hands until the shape is cylindrical 7.5 cm long and 1 cm in diameter.  Cut into circles, and form rings. Cover the rings with yolk and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Put them onto a baking pan and bake at 180 C for 15 minutes until your cookies are light brown.

Enjoy!

  1. My 9-month-old loved these! He’s got no teeth yet, but sucking on these cookies got him occupied for 5 minutes. Healthy, delicious, and some peace and quite for me. My hubby loved them too, btw! Thanks!
