This Near Eastern pastry is made of many layers of paper-thin dough with a filling usually of honey and ground nuts. If you like honey, you'll probably like Baklava.
I got this butter ball recipe from my mother-in-law who is Greek. I make a double batch every Christmas and my hubby eats most of them. Enjoy!
Greek Butter Cookies
When I was little I used to live next to a Greek family, who would make these cookies year round, and give tins of them to neighbors around Christmas.
Delicious Greek pastries...probably one of my favorites because of the orange and cinnamon combination. Worth the time they take!
Kourambiathes (Greek Cookies)
A traditional Greek shortbread cookie. Adds a good flavor to any holiday!
Pasteli (Greek Sesame Bars)
Sesame seed is the ultimate brain food and an excellent source of calcium. Enjoy its benefits with these traditional sesame bars from the Greek island of Sifnos.
