I am not sure if your mother's friend is missing some main ingredients...but I have lived in Cyprus for almost 10 years and have traveled to Greece yearly. Kourambiedes is my favourite Greek dessert. I added the following to give it a bit more kick : - Nutmeg ground spice ( to add a bit to the batter ) - Cloves ground spice ( to add a bit to batter ) - Icing sugar for sprinkling ( I also added a bit of nutmeg and cloves to the icing sugar mix ) - Vanilla essence - Toasted almonds ( chopped coarsely ) - Very little almond extract ( or else it will taste " synthetic " ) - 1 tbs. of cognac or brandy

It was way too dry to shape into crescents. Hard to work with.
