Melomakarona (A Greek Christmas Cookie)
60 mins (prep 30, cooking 30)
17 ingredients
40-50 servings
These are a coarse-grained cookie soaked in a honey syrup (the semolina achieves this), popular throughout Greece during the Christmas Holidays. They are wonderful and are THE recipe that makes my house smell like Christmas - orange peel and cloves and cinnamon. The most unbelievable perfume wafts through the house for a couple of days after baking!
