Kourambiedes (A Greek Christmas Cookie)

30 mins (prep 15, cooking 15)
11 ingredients
30-40 servings
Basically a Greek butterball cookie recipe. These, with Melomakarona, are found in every Greek home during the Christmas Holidays. I go through phases. One year, or for a couple of years, these are my favourites, then Melomakarona are, and I keep switching back and forth. They're both wonderful! These keep wonderfully, long after Christmas is over, if any are left.
