Serves: 30-35 cookies Preparation time: 20′ Cooks in: 20′ Ready in: 40′
610gr all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking ammonia
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp ground cloves
200ml extra-virgin olive oil
200ml petimezi (grape molasses of good quality)
1/3 cup water
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
Preheat oven at 170C and line a shallow baking dish with baking parchment.
In a large bowl mix all ingredients except flour, until well combined. Add flour and mix with hands or in stand mixer until you get a nice dough.
Take a little knob of dough at a time, about the size of a large walnut and shape it into a thin rope and then into a circle, pressing the edges together, or any other shape.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until lightly crisp. Make sure NOT to over bake. Cool on racks and store in a cool, dry place.
