Place the dough for the koulourakia on a clean working surface, take a small piece of dough and form long cords.
Shape the koulourakia with your hands, giving them any shape you like.

Line a large baking tray with parchment paper and place the koulourakia, leaving some distance between them as they will rise a lot when baked.
In a small bowl add the egg yolks and 1 tbsp water and whisk with a fork.
