Kourambiedes (Greek cookies)

Billie Neal


This recipe comes from a 1968 recipe book titled,"Favorite Recipes From Church of GOD Ladies". Each of the recipes has the ladies' name and home town and I will include this with the recipe and if you know or are related to this person, I would really like to know. The recipes I post from this cookbook are ones I have tried and really like or are unusual due to ingredients or possibly due to the number of recipes with the same name but are different in some way. I hope you enjoy.
I know some the recipes are really lacking in some or all areas, but I am posting them as they are in the cookbook

pinch tips: Parchment Paper Vs Wax Paper

Directions Step-By-Step

Cream butter well; add sugar. Mix well.

Cool and roll each cookie in additional powdered sugar.
