Koulourakia Methysmena (Κουλουράκια Μεθυσμένα)

Probably the easiest cookie recipe ever. Enjoy with a hot (or cold) drink!

Oven: 400 F     BakingTime: 20-25 minutes

1 cup sugar
1 cup oil
1 cup butter or vegetable shortening
1 cup orange juice (or white wine)
1-1.5 lbs (6-7 cups) Self Raising Flour
1 egg white and sesame seeds to finish (optional)

Get some veggies in 'em: add 1/4 cup grated carrot 1/4 cup grated zucchini in the mix.

Mix all the ingredients together except the flour until well mixed. Add flour a little at a time until the dough comes off the sides of the bowl. Shape into any cookie shape you want or use a cookie dough press or cutter and cut shapes (about 1/4 inch thick).  If you want brush with a beaten egg white and roll into sesame seeds before baking.
