  1. These cοme from my country, Greece. You should mention that! Don’t you think dear? It is a custom in Greece to make them every Christmas. They are called κουραμπιεδες.
    Of course in Greece we make them even better! This is not the authentic recipe.
    If you are going to make any other recipies from my country, please mention that. Because people deserve to know. 😊😊

  2. I have to admit I wasn’t too sure about this one. This is a lot different cookie than I had ever tried to make. But you’re right they are absolutely great🤗. Next time I have to try to make them a little smaller though I only got about 26 from the batch.

  3. Made these yesterday with my sister, could not stop eating them! Sooooo good!!! Thank you for the great recipe 🙂 I️ love your website and videos! Always using it for my cooking and baking, never disappointed! Thank you 💕

  4. I love these cookies. Also, I like these shorter humorous cooking videos vs. the longer professional style videos. Thanks so much for the humor! Honestly, I love watching cooking videos but must confess I like eating more than cooking. Great job Natasha!
