This Kourabiedes recipe is central to our household’s foodie festivities come Christmas. That mixture of butter and almond makes for an authentic Kourampiedes recipe, and they’re just one of the best Greek Christmas cookies I can think of (though I do love Melomakarona too!).

We bake these by the plateful through December, taking them around to friends’ houses when they host us for Christmas celebrations. Try it; they’re not hard to bake, and make a great change from a mince pie, even if I do say so myself!
