About this recipe


With our Greek Koulourakia Cookies, you'll embark on a Mediterranean adventure, savoring buttery, crispy cookies infused with hints of vanilla, citrus, and secret spices. These scrumptious cookies have been a star in Greek culture for ages, symbolizing joy and togetherness — they’re like a taste of Mediterranean joy in every bite.

In this kit, you'll embark on a spice exploration, sniffing out cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg from your kitchen. Discover the unique scents of these spices and learn how they change when paired with orange zest, deepening your baking adventure.

Challenge yourself and a partner to shape the cookie dough into various forms, from simple twists to intricate braids, or even letters of the alphabet. Let your creativity run wild as you transform dough into edible art.

Lastly, a quick video will take you to Zanzibar, the spice island, to learn about the origins of these essential baking spices. 

This journey through scent, shape, and story makes the Koulourakia Bake & Explore Kit not just a baking activity, but a fun, educational dive into Greek culture and the global spice trade.
