I’m sharing a recipe that I included in my August Newsletter.
Kourambiethes, are a an almond shortbread that is coated in icing sugar. They are traditionally baked at Easter and Christmas time. The Christmas recipe calls for a single clove to be placed in the centre. These cookies are so popular that you will find them all year round at any Greek patisserie. The origins of the Kourambie (cookie) comes from 7th century Persia, when sugar was a common used staple in cookery. The origin of the word is from the Iranian word “Qurabiya.” Naturally, the cookies have changed over time and many countries have a variation of this transcendent buttery cookie. Today I am sharing my Greek recipe with you all.
