Greek Olive Oil Cookies: Vegan Ladokouloura

Get the recipe here:
1 and 1/2 cups olive oil or vegetable oil
3/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup water
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
4 cups all purpose flour (plus maybe 1 cup more if needed)
​zest of 2 oranges
1 teaspoon baking powder
​1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup ground walnuts

sesame seeds
Preheat the oven to 350 °F, 180 °C.
​Zest the oranges before juicing them.
Place the walnuts in a food processor and chop until they resemble coarse crumbs.
​Combine the flour, baking powder, and orange zest in a large bowl and whisk all the ingredients together.
​In another bowl, combine the olive oil, orange juice, water, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and vanilla extract. Whisk well to incorporate all of the ingredients.
Add the flour mixture a little at a time whisking to combine.
When the mixture becomes to thick to whisk, mix the rest of the flour in with your hands.
​Add the walnuts and mix until combined.
​At this point the dough will seem wet and sticky.
Set it aside for 5 minutes and it will come together and become a very pliable cookie dough. Add a half to 1 cup of flour if needed. (see video)
​Cut the dough into walnut sized balls. This recipe makes about 45.
​Roll the balls into logs and place onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Leave some room in between each cookie for rising. They will also spread slightly while baking.
Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the cookies become slightly browned around the edges.
​It is a good idea to also rotate the trays halfway through baking. Switch the bottom tray to the upper rack and the top tray on the bottom. This will ensure even baking.
Cool the cookies on cooling racks.
​Serve and enjoy!
Sesame seeds can be added to the cookie dough or the cookies can be rolled in sesame after they are formed.
