Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
I love this recipe because I have a friend who can't eat egg whites and most of the recipes I've found call for them. Nice, tasty and toasty

Koulourakia I

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
I worked for a Greek family and these aren't the traditional style that they made. But the taste is pretty good and unlike some others I didn't have any consistency issues. My batch came out slightly sticky and held up great. I just double the recipe and weighed out 1 ounce pieces then made them into little "snakes," brought one end around and gave it 2 quick twists to hold it together. It may be difficult at first but just keep trying. It's a pretty forgiving dough. If your's came out dry try cutting back a 1/4 c on the flour or add 1-2 tbsp additional cream (I used whole milk with no problems).

Kourambiathes (Greek Cookies)

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
The texture on these was acceptable but I'll probably cut back a bit on the flour in the future. REMOVE the anise. Or cut it back to about 1 tsp if you like a bit of the flavor. You're much better off substituting half vanilla half almond extract and sprinkling with rosewater before putting the powdered sugar on them. Rosewater is available in Indian and Mediterranean sections relatively cheap ($3-5 in my area) and tastes great even on standard shortbread.
