Good morning my friends, I know Easter is far away but I really like this cookie and I must try this recipe to see the results, so let’s give this a try together .
240 gr. butter at room temperature
160 gr. sugar
1 egg yolk at room temperature
75 ml (5 tbsp.) Milk
30 ml (2 tbsp.) Brandy
Σ KS baking powder
500 gr. soft flour
1 egg for spreading
Beat the butter in the mixer until fluffy.
Add the sugar and stir until melted.
I continue pouring the yolk, milk and brandy.
Finally, after mixing the flour with the baking powder, I gradually put them in the mixer, stirring with the hook until it becomes a fluffy buttery dough that does not stick to the walls of the bucket.
Cover with cling film and let the dough rest for 30 minutes.
I take balls and shape them into a string, fold it in half and rotate its two parts to form a braid. After turning three times I cut the rest and join the ends.
I place them in the pan at a distance from each other so that they do not stick when they are cooked.
Mix with a beaten egg a little water and spread the cookies on top.
Bake them on the middle grill, in a preheated oven on the heating elements at 180 * C for 25 minutes.
I take them out, leave them to cool and store them in an airtight container so that they do not get moisture.
Let the magic begins .....
Stay safe and healthy my friends and take care of your people
My best wishes from Greece
