3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
2 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
3 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon milk

Koulourakia Recipe at
In a large mixing bowl beat the butter or margarine with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the sugar, baking powder, aniseed, and lemon peel; beat till combined. Beat in the eggs and 2 tablespoons milk. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour with a wooden spoon. Divide dough in half. If necessary, chill dough for 30 to 60 minutes, or till easy to handle.

On a lightly floured surface, shape each half of dough into a 12-inch log. Cut each log into twenty-four 1/2-inch pieces. Roll each piece into a 6-inch rope. Curl each end of the rope to form an S shape. Place the cookies 1 inch apart on greased cookie sheets.

In a small mixing bowl stir together egg white and 1 tablespoon milk; brush mixture over cookies. If desired, sprinkle with sesame seed.

Bake in a preheated 375 degrees oven for 7 to 9 minutes, or till bottoms are lightly browned. Remove cookies from pans and cool on a rack.
