ER--I make those cookies in the pix--but forget what they're called.  I call them braided cookies.  :rolleyes: When I make them, it's enough for 50 people...typical Greek style.  I make those fabulous Greek powered sugar covered cookies too.  All butter and cake flour and to die for.

Patti, here are the confectioner sugar cookies and they literally melt in your mouth. My DH doesn't like the clove on it. This is one of a couple recipes I have for this particular cookie. They are wonderful at Christmas, aren't they?
If your recipe is different, I would love to have it.

Kourabiethes

1 lb. sweet butter
˝ cup confectioners’ sugar
2 egg yolks
1 tsp. baking powder
6 cups cake flour
1 cup browned chopped almonds
1 oz. whiskey
whole cloves

Instructions:

Soften butter at room temperature. Put in electric mixer and beat well: add egg yolks and beat thoroughly.
Sift flour and baking powder and mix into butter mixture.
Add nuts if desired.
sprinkle dough lightly with whiskey and knead thoroughly.
Roll out dough and cut into diamond shapes or roll into balls and center with a whole clove.
bake on cookie sheet at 35o degrees about 20 minutes.
Sprinkle liberally with confectioners’ sugar.
