RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE
KURABIEDES (Butter Cookies), Greek
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.
Contributed by Mrs. Malto Kuntelos, 1950

I would like to thank Newspaperarchive for putting together such a fabulous service, and placing our Nation's history right at our fingertips. Many of these wonderful recipes are ones I stumbled upon quite by accident while sleuthing through the decades in my quest to assemble the world of the American housewife. RH
