Maybe they should even be called “Cow Cookies”! This is perfect for a party or just a friendly gathering.
1 – 1 1/2 cups sugar, white or raw sugar
2 eggs, large and lightly beaten
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. fresh lemon zest
cinnamon and sugar mixed to roll cookie balls
Greek Christmas Sweets.
Please visit my update recipe and pictures of this recipe here. Thank you!
These are one of two traditional Christmas sweets made all over Greece. They are a simple, delicious syrup cookie made with fresh juice, zest, and cinnamon and spices. Once baked they are crunchy, but after a light syrup bath and topped with nuts, they are transformed into a decadent Greek sweet.
These are definitely not of Greek decent, it is actually very difficult to even find peanut butter here on the island. When we have it, but it is only a 5 oz. jar for an equivalent of about $6.50. Hardly worth it, but sometimes I get little packages from the homeland that included wonderful treats such as chocolate chips and oversized jars of peanut butter! Hooray for family and friends who love me.
