Greek Christmas Honey Cookies (Melomakarona)
- DF VE
A traditional Greek Christmas recipe, Melomakarona are delicious honey cookies that will fill your house with the festive scent of baking, orange, cinnamon and spices!
Melomakarona are a central festive staple when it comes to foodie Greek Christmas traditions. These moist, sweet, gently spiced and orange-scented biscuits are the ultimate in festive indulgence, and are the sweetest gift to take around to your host when you’re invited to any Christmas get-togethers.
That’s what we tend to do in Greece - create a plate full of Kourampiedes and Melomakarona for our host. If you have some leftover, they are the perfect mid-morning indulgence with a cup of coffee - just get your brew and your biscuit, sit in a comfy chair, snuggle up and take a second’s peace to enjoy the run up to the big day!
