In Search of Delicious! Baking Bread and Cookies at 5 am in Athens, Greece

I was working in Athens last week and, despite jet lag, was happily awakened at 5 am by the intoxicating smell of freshly baked bread and …. wait, what was that sweet aroma????? Cookies! Had to leave the apartment and track down the scent. There it was. Captured a few images to share with you.

This handsome baker caught my eye as I was walking through the streets of the Exarchia neighborhood in Athens, Greece.

Growing up, we called these cookies twists and the Sicilian side of my family loved them!
