Delicious Greek Cookies

Tasty easy orange cookies that are a must try!

My German friend gave me this recipe for these Greek cookies. She likes to make cookies from all over the world and these orange cookies made her best cookies recipes list.

I made them at home to see how they come out and they turned out to be really easy to make.

greek cookies These easy orange cookies have candied orange peel as garnish. If you don’t like it, you don’t have to use it. I make my own candied orange peel and since I know where the oranges come from I used it as deco.

For these easy cookies you also need olive oil. I suggest using good quality oil, the same one you use for your salads.

I like these orange cookies since all ingredients go in one mixing bowl and there is no cutting out of cookies involved.

You just pour the cookie batter onto a large rectangular cake pan, bake, let it cool and cut into triangles.

That makes these cookies really easy to make. I hope that you will enjoy these easy cookies as much as I did.
