making traditional melomakarona & kourambiedes !

IMGP1370IMGP1385Just before Christmas we got together with a very ambitious plan:

we were determined to make the traditional Greek Christmas cookies called melomakarona and kourambiedes.

The task proved a highly challenging one…

…HOWEVER, WE MADE IT!!!

Even my mom, who, believe me, is a terribly strict judge, approved! The evening achieved its goal and we also had lots of fun, as you can guess from the photos.

We hope to see you as well next year!

CHRONIA POLLA !!

PS: the date on the photos is wrong due to malfunction of the camera
