Greek Olive Oil Cookie – Kolourakia Lathiou


– ½ cup SOOC Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil
– ¼ cup white sugar + more for sprinkling
– ¼ cup brown sugar
– ½ cup orange juice
– 2 cups flour
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– ½ teaspoon baking soda
– ½ teaspoon cinnamon + more for sprinkling


Preheat oven at 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl mix the olive oil, sugar and orange juice with a large wooden spoon.

In a smaller bowl mix the flour with baking powder, soda and cinnamon. Start adding the flour to the olive oil mixture gradually mixing with the spoon. You should have a soft dough, but not sticky so you can roll into balls.

Cover the dough and let it sit for 10 minutes.

Grease a pan with a bit of olive oil.

Make the cinnamon sugar mixture by mixing 2 tablespoons of sugar with ½ teaspoon cinnamon, blend well.

For small  cookies, I take about a teaspoon of dough and roll it into a ball. Dip into the cinnamon-sugar mixture and roll it around then place on the pan.

Bake for about 12-15 minutes. Remove and cool on rack.
