Greek Easter Cookies
|Butter/Margarine||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Granulated sugar||1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)|
|Brandy flavoring||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Gold medal flour||2 Cup (32 tbs)|
|Baking powder||1 Teaspoon|
|Confectioners' sugar||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
Heat oven to 350°
Mix the first 5 ingredients together thoroughly.
Measure flour by dipping method or by sifting.
Blend flour, baking powder, and cloves; stir into butter mixture; mix well.
Shape dough in small balls, about 3/4" in diameter, or in cylindrical shapes formed in 2" long half-moons.
Place cookies on lightly greased baking sheet.
Bake 10 to 12 min., or until cookies are set but not browned.
Let stand 2 min. before removing from baking sheet.
When cool, dust with confectioners' sugar. (For a more authentic Greek cooky, omit ground cloves and place a whole clove in center of each cooky before baking.)
