THIS WAS ONE OF THE COOKIES I HAD MADE FOR THE CHRISTMAS TRAYS FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS FOR MANY MANY YEARS.
THIS IS A DELICATE COOKIE, MELT IN YOUR MOUTH IN ONE BITE.
A VERY NICE ALMOND TASTE TO THEM.
A NICE COOKIE FOR A COOKIE-SWAP.
THIS RECIPE WAS HANDED DOWN TO ME BY AN OLDER LADY IN THE EARLY '70'S.

How to Make CAROLS GREEK COOKIE BALLS

Step-by-Step

  1. I USE A KITCHEN-AID MIXER FOR THESE.
  2. PREHEAT OVEN TO 350 DEGREES.
  3. MIX BUTTER AND CONF. SUGAR UNTIL FLUFFY.
  4. THEN BEAT IN EGG YOLK AND EXTRACT UNTIL SMOOTH.
  5. IN A SEPARATE BOWL; WHISK THE FLOUR, BAKING POWDER AND ALMONDS TOGETHER.
  6. ADD THE DRY INGREDIENTS A THIRD AT A TIME TO THE BUTTER MIXTURE AND MIX FOR A COUPLE MINUTES.
  7. CHILL FOR 1 HOUR.
  8. SHAPE INTO 1 INCH BALLS - [APPROX. 1 TBSP.] - [DO NOT FLATTEN]
  9. PUT ON AN UN-GREASED COOKIE SHEET 2 INCHES APART.
  10. BAKE APPROX. 15 MINUTES - [LIGHT SAND COLOR]
  11. WHEN DONE MOVE TO WAX PAPER-- SPRINKLE WITH CONF. SUGAR WHILE STILL WARM.
  12. NOTE: THIS IS A DELICATE COOKIE, SO DON'T SQUEEZE THEM. MAKES A NICE COOKIE FOR A COOKIE SWAP; BUT YOU WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO DOUBLE THE RECIPE. I DID WHEN I MADE MY CHRISTMAS TRAYS.
