This Greek Easter cookie recipe is traditionally just made at Easter. The Greeks have many recipes like these that are usually only made at certain times of the year.
In Greece, households will always have some cookies made and stored in a cookie jar, for snacks or to offer visitors and at Easter, this is a simple recipe they use for cookies, to have on hand for whenever they might be needed.
This Greek Easter cookie is great to have for breakfast or anytime with a cup of tea or coffee.
1/2 cup butter
Cream the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
Once it is all mixed in, use your hands to knead it a little until it is a smooth, easy to handle dough. If necessary, add more flour if it is too moist.
Break off pieces of dough and you can shape the cookies however you like. Some like to create circles.
Mix the egg yolk with about 1 teaspoon of water and brush over the tops of all the cookies to give a warm golden colour once baked.
Bake in a hot oven for 20-30 minutes. Leave to cool on a wire rack.
