Koulouria II

I love Koulouria (Greek butter cookies)  and I am always experimenting in my kitchen with my recipes. You can never have enough recipes for Koulouria, This one got the thumbs up from my Greek clan.  Enjoy this wonderful traditional Greek butter cookie.  

Koulouria II
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2 cookie sheets lined with parchment or silpat


1 pound unsalted butter (must be soften)
2 cups sugar
4 large or XL eggs (must be at room temperature)
6 tsp. baking powder
7 -8 cups all purpose flour (start with 6 cups) add more if needed
pinch salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon ouzo

Egg Wash (one egg in a cup with a 1 tablespoon water, mix well)
Sesame seeds

Using mixer, beat sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at time,  mix well. Add extract and ouzo. Sift flour and baking powder with pinch salt. Slowly add four until the dough comes together and is not sticky. Do this slowly. The dough should be soft but not sticky. You should be able to roll it out easily into a long rope, about 6 inches, bring ends together together and then twist the dough. Place cookies on cookie sheet. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle sesame seeds on each cookie. Bake for about 20 minutes. You want a golden color. Cool cookies on cooling rack. You can make them bigger or smaller. It's up to you. Adjust time to size.
