Kourabiedes Recipe: This Easy Greek Butter Cookie Recipe Melts in Your Mouth

Kourabiedes, or Greek butter cookies, are a type of shortbread cookie made with lots of butter, powdered sugar, brandy and sometimes nuts. Similar to Italian butter balls, Mexican wedding cookies and sand tarts, this easy cookie recipe melts in your mouth.

Cuisine: Greek/Turkish
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 12 to 15 minutes per batch
Total Time: 22 to 25 minutes

Servings: Makes 4 to 5 dozen


Here's how to make it: 

  1. Beat the butter and 1/2 cup of the powdered sugar together. Add egg yolk and brandy.
  2. In another bowl, whisk the flour and baking powder together. Add this mixture to the butter. (It will be crumbly.)
  3. Shape the dough into round discs. Put them onto baking sheets
  4. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven for about 12 to 15 minutes or until the edges are beginning to lightly brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool about 10 minutes.
  5. Put the remaining powdered sugar into a bowl. Roll the cookies in the sugar.

Yum! I have some brandy extract that I could use, so will be making these soon! Just a note that if you don't have brandy, you could substitute vanilla or your favorite baking extract.
