Recipe for Kourambiedes (Walnut Butter Cookies)


1/2 lb butter; melted and cooled
2 tablespoon sugar, confectioners
1/2 cup sugar, confectioners
1 teaspoon baking powder, double acting
2 1/4 cup flour, all purpose
1/4 cup walnuts; finely chopped


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F). In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, 2 tablespoons of the sugar and the baking powder and stir together with a large spoon. Sift in the flour about 1/4 cup at a time beating well after each addition, then stir in the walnuts. On a lightly floured surface, pat 2 tablespoons of dough at a time into round cakes about 1 inches in diameter and inch thick. Shape into triangles by pinching and pulling out the sides of each cake with your thumbs and forefingers. If you prefer "S" shaped cookies, roll about 2 tablespoons of the dough at a time into ropes about 6 inches long and 1/4 inch in diameter, and twist them one at a time into S shapes. Place the cookies about 1 inch apart on a large baking sheet and bake in the middle of the oven for 15 minutes, or until they are lightly browned and firm to the touch. Cool the cookies on a rack. Just before serving, sprinkle the cookies with the remaining cup of confectioners sugar.
