Greek Butter CookiesGreek cookies (koulourakia, κουλουράκια, say: koo-loo-RAHK-yah) are favorites with young cooks. Because the dough is traditionally hand-rolled into rope-shaped pieces that are then pushed, twisted, or coiled into small shapes, they're a perfect outlet for creative hands.

These butter cookies are easy to make, and the dough is pretty dense, making it ideal for creating a multitude of shapes. The only thing standard about the cookies is that they're small - perfect for snacking, adding to lunchboxes, or serving with coffee and tea.
