Greek Butter Biscuits recipe

These tasty biscuits are absolutely melt in the mouth and they are perfect for serving with a glass of milk or a cup of tea. They're enriched with egg yolks and cognac and they are actually really simple to make.


  • 500g unsalted butter
  • 450g plain flour
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 60ml cognac
  • 2 egg yolks and one whole egg
  • 1 tsp. baking powder

Method of Preparation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C.

  2. Beat together the butter and sugar using an electric whisk. Add the egg yolks one at a time and then whisk in the cognac.

  3. Stir in the baking powder and then add the flour, bit by bit, mixing with your hands, until the mixture no longer sticks to your hands.

  4. Roll the dough into thin sausages and make plaits from the sausages.

  5. Brush the biscuits with beaten egg and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

Feel free to add things to these biscuits, such as chocolate chips or lemon zest - whatever takes your fancy. This recipe makes 4 dozen biscuits, depending on the size that you make them.
