Ingredients

cups flour, all-purpose
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 tablespoon cinnamon
freshly ground
1 tablespoon cloves
freshly ground
¼ cup olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
½ each oranges
zest grated
1 cup orange juice
* not incl. in nutrient facts

Directions

Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and cloves into a large bowl, making a well in the center.

In a smaller bowl, beat the olive oil with the honey, petimezi, grated orange zest, and ½ the orange juice and pour into the well.

Mix together to make a dough, adding the remaining orange juice as necessary.

Turn onto a floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes until the dough is smooth but not stiff.

Cover with a cloth and leave to relax for 30 minutes or longer.

Break off pieces of dough, about 2 tablespoonfuls each, and roll into snakes about ½-inch in diameter.

Press the two ends together, forming oval wreaths, and place on an oiled or non-stick baking sheet.

Bake in an oven preheated to 375℉ (190℃) F for 10 to 15 minutes- until they are brown and crunchy, but not too hard.

Moustokouroulakia are made with grape must! This is what gives them their unique and tastey flavour. This is not a traditional recipe at all!
