Description

Kourambiethes, or Greek butter cookies, are an easy, delicious and traditional Greek pastry.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Butter
  • 1-¼ cup Powdered Sugar, Divided
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 ounce, fluid Whiskey
  • 1-½ teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon Almond Extract
  • 3-½ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Soda

Preparation

Heat oven to 350ºF.

Beat butter and 1/4 cup powdered sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 to 4 minutes.

Beat in egg. Add whiskey, vanilla and almond extract. Beat well. Sift flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add to mixture; stir in, do not beat. Dough should be soft but not sticky.

Pinch off 1-inch balls of dough and shape into crescents. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10–12 minutes or until bottom is lightly browned.

Place cookies on wire rack and let cool for about 5 to 6 minutes. Roll in remaining powdered sugar.  

This easy, traditional Greek recipe makes 3 dozen cookies.
