Desert Koulourakia - syrupy Greek snails

Desert Koulourakia - syrupy Greek snails

Dissolve the yeast in warm milk. Beat the eggs with the vanilla sugar sachet, the sugar spoon and the baking powder sachet. Over the eggs add the milk and then the flour and cinnamon. Knead a soft but non-sticky dough, cover it with a kitchen towel and leave it in a warm place for 1 hour.

Divide the dough into 3 parts.

We spread a part of the dough, we grease it with butter with the blade of a knife and we fold it in 3.

We cut thin strips, approx. of 1 cm. and twist the strip, then tie it. Put the snails in a pan greased with oil.

Put the snails in the preheated oven, at 180 degrees C, for 30-35 minutes.

While the snails are in the oven, make the syrup: put 3 cups of boiling water, when it boils, set it aside and add the honey. You can put more, if you want, according to everyone's taste.

As soon as we take the snails out of the oven, we pour a syrup of polish over them. I let them 3-4 min. to absorb the syrup, after which we turn them on the other side and leave them for another 4-5 minutes.

Powder with powdered sugar.

Biscuit cake

The biscuit cake has the same taste as the biscuit salami, only the presentation is more festive. I also added chocolate for a more special taste. What can be an advantage is that it is a delicious cake prepared very quickly and you never fail with it.


  • 500 g biscuits
  • 200 g butter
  • 100 g sugar
  • 50 g cocoa
  • 300 g chocolate
  • coconut
  • esenta de rom

First we crushed the biscuits in a large bowl.

Melt the butter, add the sugar and 50 ml of water. Add the melted butter over the crushed biscuits and mix well with a spoon. Add cocoa, melted chocolate and essence and incorporate them well. A not very soft paste will result.

Wallpaper the bottom of a tray with removable walls with baking paper. Add the biscuit composition and press well with a spoon.

Koulourakia Desert - Syrupy Greek Snails - Recipes

Pour the dough on the work table, cut it into 8 pieces of about 110 g each

we make a cord as long as possible (we lengthen the dough in the middle of the cord towards the ends)

Place the martyrs in the stove tray on baking paper and leave to rise again for 30 minutes, during which time heat the oven to 190 degrees. Make sure they have enough distance between them, because they grow in the 30 minutes, then in the oven.
