    Julesong's Note:

    This is an adopted recipe and, although it looks like a nice beginning, needs some tweaking. I'll need to prepare them myself before I'd recommend them as written. (A while clove in each cookie? Ooof!)

      Well Julesong, glad you never got around to altering this recipe, it's wonderful just the way it is, especially if you are a garlic lover like myself and family. The cooking mellows the garlic, try it, you might like it. Thanks for sharing. Lee

      This is a very old recipe. It is kourambiedes and the clove is very important. It adds a lot to the cookie. You simply remove the clove before eating. We Greeks like to think it originated from us, but then the Lebanese and Turks think they own this recipe too. Nobody knows, but it melts in your mouth. I will have to submit my version of this cookie too.
