RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

DESSERT

KURABIEDES (Butter Cookies), Greek

Ingredients
  • 1 lb. sweet butter
  • 1 jigger brandy
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 lb. flour (more or less, according to the amount the dough requires)
  • ½ cup peeled almonds, coarsely ground
  • Vanilla
  • 1 lb. box powdered sugar
Preparation Instructions

Melt butter over very low heat. Take a piece of cheese cloth and fold into two folds. Strain butter through this into a bowl. Beat thoroughly until creamy white. Add brandy sugar, almonds, vanilla and mix. Add flour -- as much as required for dough to be formed. Knead. Roll into crescent pieces or any other shape desired and put in baking sheet. Bake in a slow oven (300°). Do not let them turn brown. Cookies should be an off-white color when done.

When cool, roll in powdered sugar and sprinkle generously with sugar after putting on a platter.
