Greek Wine Cookies: Krasokouloura Recipe

Hello to you all! Sorry for my absence on Kouzounas Kitchen, but currently I am busy working full time, and gathering a Fall menu together.

Good News: My seller permit for Farmers Markets PASSED! They approved my menu, as well as I now will be able to hopefully join some farmers markets within the area.

When I had some time the past few days to play in the kitchen, I had a chance to make these yummy Vegan Greek cookies.

If you like simple, healthy, and Vegan cookies, you should check these out. 🙂
