Using Twitter to Make Greek Easter Cookies

I wanted to make a seasonal favorite, Greek Easter Cookies, but after searching for a recipe, decided to ask the local anchor of the FOX 25 news if she had a recipe. She did and they were delicious!

  3. Maria sent me the recipe via email:

    2 sticks of butter softened.
    1 cup of sugar

    mix

    add two slightly beaten eggs with 2 tsp of vanilla
    mix well

    add three cups of flour and 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder

    Then braid them!!! Good luck with that :)

    Brush them with butter and put sesame seeds on top and place them on a greased cookie sheet

    Cook for 17 minutes in a 350 oven.

    And try not to eat them all :)

    Best and Happy Easter
