Kurabiiki cookies are the Bulgarian version of the popular qurabiya cookies, which are baked throughout the Middle East. In Bulgaria, they are made from butter, honey, egg yolks, sugar, and flour. It is the egg yolks that give them their typical yellow color. Before baking, the cookies are sprinkled with coarse sugar.
Kurabiiki are durable pastries, properly stored they can last for several months. The cookie is crispy and quite hard even when freshly baked.
You can buy kurabiiki cookies in almost every bakery in Bulgaria. I bought them near the central farmers’ markets in Varna. One piece cost approximately 0.36 EUR.
