      Cornstarch, in nearly every recipe, implies a step out. My family has been making these cookies for generations. They are called Kourambiedes...pronounced Kroom-bea-e-tes..from the English dictionary...and my recipe wasn't allowed due to a 'duplicate' entry. The 'real thing' takes MUCH longer, but turns out much better, from what the previous entry explained. If you have the time to try an old family tradition, check out the actual recipe.

      According to the recipe, the preparation time says it takes 5 minutes. Step 2 of the recipe says to beat with an electric mixer for 10 minutes. Then you have to add the remaining ingredients and continue mixing and prepare to place them in the oven. Now who did the math here? The cookies are very delicate; they break easily coming out of the oven. I was not impressed with their appearance.
