Koulourakia (Special Occasion Cookies)
2 c All-purpose flour
1 ts Ground cinnamon
3/4 c Vegetable oil
3/4 c Superfine sugar
3/4 ts Baking powder
1/2 ts Baking soda
1/4 c Brandy
1 c Sesame seeds
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Combine the flour and cinnamon in a bowl and set aside.
In a medium bowl, beat the oil and sugar with an electric mixer until
smooth and creamy. In a cup, dissolve the baking powder and baking
soda in the brandy, then add to the oil mixture.
Gradually add the flour until the dough is soft but not sticky. Turn
out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Pinch off
pieces of dough the size of small walnuts and form into desired
shapes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and place 1 inch apart on greased
cookie sheets. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
