CHOCOLATE KOURAMBIEDES (GREEK CHRISTMAS COOKIES)
Chocolate Kourambiedes (Greek Christmas cookies)
Last year, we tried chocolate kourambiedes for the first time and they were quite good, so this year we decided to try them. Although my Mom has a recipe for chocolate kourambiedes, we decided to use her basic recipe. Just a couple of notes on the recipe: Kourambiedes are normally made with a butter made from a mix of goat's and sheep's milk, called "voutiro galaktos" (I think it's called "butter oil" in English), but you can use regular unsalted butter. The original recipe calls for some ingredients being measured in a "small teacup" which is the ones Greeks drink their Greek coffee in - you can use an espresso cup.
