Olive oil cookies

Olive oil cookies are my winner cookies.  A delicious recipe that never disappoints.

My shortcrust pastry with olive oil has improved over time, with small tricks that make it perfect. I have never loved traditional pastry, so this healthy alternative is ideal for me.

Olive oil is a precious commodity, recently considered, by some scientific studies, a real medicine. A delicate extra virgin oil is perfect for tasty and light sweets.

Usually, I prepare these cookies with flours from ancient Sicilian grains. Although they are already available in the best Italian food stores, I propose this recipe with flours easier to find even abroad.

These olive oil cookies are very fragrant and friable, also ideal as a dessert if accompanied by a cup of tea or hot chocolate.


Makes  about 15-20 cookies


80 g (3 oz) raw coconut sugar

100 ml (3½  fl oz) organic mild extra virgin olive oil

100 ml (3½  fl oz) plain yogurt, unsweetened

Pinch of sea salt
