Don't forget to pin these goodies and add my Greek Butter Cookies onto your favorite list!!!!
 Greek Butter Cookies
This is a very special cookie to me and my inner child. We , my inner child and I used to enjoy these when I was a child. I used to visit all my aunts in Astoria, ( They all lived within footsteps of each other . Yes I know, totally Big Fat Greek Wedding!!), and as I visited each one they would hand over these lovelies. So from house to house covered in white powder I went. Each one made their cookie a little different and I have taken the best of what I liked and tweaked the recipe.

The pictures below will help you understand the steps better. I suggest printing the recipe and then looking through the photos.There is a little extra work to use the clarified butter but it makes a simply amazing cookie.

 I'm showing the thumb prints here and the height and size of the cookie.

This photo shows the tinfoil with sifted powdered sugar with  hot out the oven cookies placed on top. What happens is the warm cookie begins to absorb the sugar and sweetness. Remember this cookie has very little sugar inside and it comes alive with the powdered sugar.

                                                                      Sift more powdered sugar on top of  the warm cookie. 
 These cookies are fragile and I like to lift them with my tiny cookie spatula.

                                                             Yes that is a colander and yes I use it to sift powdered sugar.

Happy Holidays

    1. Totally a mess. I have to gear up mentally for this baking.

  3. I love these cookies. I get them from the Greek church when they have their bake sale. Learning to make them could be dangerous.
