Finikia or Phinikia is a type of Greek cookie.[1]


The cookie is made using flour, baking powder, orange juice, and oil. No dairy products are used. After baking in the oven, the finikia are rolled in a mixture of cinnamon, sugar and ground walnuts. Melomakarona, another type of Greek cookie dessert, is made with the same ingredients, but after baking, is dipped into a syrup mixture consisting of sugar, honey, water, orange zest, and cloves. Then it is rolled in the ground walnut, sugar and cinnamon mixture.[1]
