      I ditto chef kate! These cookies were so delicious. I chose to give them a more Greek shape and I served the syrup separately,so everyone could dip if they wished. I prefered them without so that was a good choice.Made for ZWT6.

      Very very good cookies! I ground some pistachios and dipped the glazed cookies halfway in the nuts. My baking time was a little shorter -- about 16 minutes or so -- but all ovens are different. Thanks for a great recipe, Mike.
