Traditional Christmas cookies with almonds. Your children are gonna love them!!!


2  cups olive oil
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1  egg yolk
1 lemon (zest)
2 tbsp cognac or ouzo
3 cups flour for all purpose (about 400gr.)
1½  tsp baking powder
1 cup chopped roasted almonds

Beat the olive oil with powdered sugar and egg yolk very well. Add cognac or ouzo, vanilla, lemon zest, almonds,  and flour. Shape cookies into a half moon by rolling small pieces of the dough into long strips. Bake at 180οC / 350F for about 25 minutes. While cookies are still warm, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Let them cool and carefully remove to storage box. 


You can preserve them for long time (almost a month) but you'll have to sprinkle with powdered sugar again before you serve.

It's better to use small form-cutters in different shapes for your cookies as they are very fragile.


That seems like incorrect amount of olive oil 2 cups is lot of oil for dough batter

Dear #Christopher, it is not incorrect, the amount is 2 teacups of olive oil. The dough needs oil to get the entire amount of flour, otherwise it will crumble.
