    diamonds4heather's Note:

    These cookies were served at every church function and holiday meal as I was growing up. They are really lovely with a nice cup of tea. This is taken from one of my mother's favorite Greek cookbooks, "The Complete Book of Greek Cooking, The Recipe Club of St. Pauls Greek Cathedral".

      Thanks Heather for posting this recipe, it brought back so many memories from when my Ya Ya use to make these. I did add a tad bit of cloves and used cognac instead. They turned out just delicious and as good as Ya Ya use to make.
