They are very good. Like shortbread, but not as sweet with sesame seeds...

i am greek, and this recipe is not an authentic take on koulourakia. the consistency is much too sandy, even though i left out 1/4 cup of flour. also, the butter flavor is too strong.

This recipe was SO easy and delicious. I worked at a Greek restaurant, and these taste just like the owner(Athena) used to make. I used heavy cream instead of half and half. Very easy to twist and shape. The sesame seeds give it that extra flavor.

Excellent. My boyfriend is Greek and says that he has had many variations of Koulourakia and this one is one of the best.
