Biscuity goodness from Greece

Think of butter pastries shaped like hairpins, swirls or horseshoe shapes — this traditional Greek dessert is a huge favourite to go with tea or coffee. Koulourakia is a tasty snack enjoyed since the time of the ancient Minoan Civilization. And back then, these pastry biscuits were shaped in the form of snakes. And that makes sense because the Minoans worshipped snakes and thought they had healing powers. There’s no doubt that this is a sweet gesture!
