Orange Cookies (Koulourakia)
70 mins (prep 60, cooking 10)

At one time, I made these often as a nice treat with a quiet cup of tea. Unlike the other koulourakia recipes posted here, this one is not a butter cookie, rather a nice combination of citrus and walnuts. Though these are traditionally served with a light dusting of powdered sugar, my guess is dipping the ends in chocolate would also work well. More recently tried to reduce the fat by replacing some of the butter, but have not had great results. The addition of applesauce and other fruit purees makes the cookie lose its characteristic crispiness. At best you can swap out 1 or 2 tablespoons of the butter, no more. Preparation time does not include 90 minutes required to chill the dough. This recipe is being posted for the ‘Zaar World Tour.
