These Greek biscuits taste like shortbread but not quite as sweet. The addition of butter, egg yolks and cream make them lovely and rich. Top with sesame seeds before baking for a traditional finish.
i am greek, and this recipe is not an authentic take on koulourakia. the consistency is much too sandy, even though i left out 1/4 cup of flour. also, the butter flavor is too strong. - 10 Jun 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe was SO easy and delicious. I worked at a Greek restaurant, and these taste just like the owner(Athena) used to make. I used heavy cream instead of half and half. Very easy to twist and shape. The sesame seeds give it that extra flavor. - 30 Sep 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Excellent. My boyfriend is Greek and says that he has had many variations of Koulourakia and this one is one of the best. - 28 May 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
