3 Tasty Snacks Recipes

Greek Butter Cookies

Preparation Time: 5–10 minutes

Cooking Time: 5 minutes

Servings: 4


  • 150 g raw almonds
  • 155 g soft butter (at room temperature)
  • 70 g caster sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 300 g flour 00
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • Icing sugar to taste
  • 20 whole cloves


1. Bring a saucepan to boil with water. When the water boils, add the almonds, cook for 10 minutes, and then drain on a sheet of absorbent paper. Remove the almond skin.

2. Light the oven to 200ºC, cover a baking sheet with baking paper, and toast the almonds. When they are well toasted, let them cool. Once cold, whisk it with a chopper. Do not reduce them to flour, but get a fine grain.

3. Whip the butter with the sugar, helping yourself with the electric whisk until you get froth. Add the egg yolks and mix with the whisk until all the ingredients are mixed. Sift the flour and baking powder.

4. Attach the flour, baking powder, and chopped almonds to the dough. Start kneading in the bowl, then move to a table and knead, it takes patience before the dough becomes compact. As soon as you get compact dough, wrap it in plastic wrap and let it rest in the fridge for an hour.

5. As soon as this time has elapsed, preheat the oven to 180°C and cover a baking sheet with baking paper. Set balls about the size of a walnut and place them on the baking tray, placing them at 2 cm from each other.

6. Press the center of each ball with the fingertips to obtain a small furrow and until golden brown. When baked, put a clove in the center of each cookie.

7. Let them cool, and then sprinkle with plenty of icing sugar.

Servings: 4–6


  • 210 g dark chocolate with a minimum of 70% cocoa solids

3. Carefully heat the solid part of the coconut milk (canned) in a different pan. Let it simmer.
