‘Ladokouloura’ – Olive oil cookies


Olive oil is not that commonly used in desserts. It has a vivid taste and strong character but it is the main ingredient in these cookies! Making cookies with olive oil, imagine that! Making cookies is either way fantastic: kneading makes you fueled relaxed, shaping the dough makes you creative and the result makes you happy.. If there are kids around or whoever is around ask them to bake together! Knead together, shape together, play, laugh and have fun!
