  • 120 ml olive oil
  • 120 g sugar caster (superfine)
  • 2 eggs
  • 80 ml Ouzo
  • 1 tsp aniseed ground
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 lemon zested
  • 380 g flour plain (all-purpose)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • cup almonds flaked (or sesame seeds)


  • Preheat your oven to 180 deg C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Combine the olive oil, sugar and eggs in a bowl of a stand mixer and beat until light and fluffy (approx. 2 mins)
  • Add the ouzo, aniseed, vanilla and lemon zest and stir to combine again. Add the flour and baking powder gradually until a smooth dough forms.
  • Roll the dough out between two sheets of baking paper measuring approx. 1cm thick. Using a 5.5cm cookie cutter, cut out little rounds and place on a lined baking tray. Repeat this process until you end up with 30 biscuits.
  • Brush a little beaten egg on top of each biscuit, top with flaked almonds and bake for 15 mins. until golden. Allow to cool before serving up with ouzo and Greek coffee.
