My entire family loved it all! It already tastes fantastic. Perhaps different brands sometimes prompt a slight variance in the amounts called for in a recipe, even just by a teaspoonful. Since I have this fancy piper to frost cupcakes which I hate making anyway: 0 Wish we had those Greek bakeries here in Portland! Magnificent cookies! They re purely addictive!! Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
It tasted EXACTLY like the stuff from our favorite Greek restaurant. It is much too dangerous for me to frequent this locally well-known Greek bakery (the sweet aromas of which tease you the second you walk through the door) to buy a box of Amygdalota and stash it somewhere in my kitchen Any measurement on how many cups of cuc s shoud be in the recipe? Is a certain brand better than others? They are excellent round Christmas, too. The recipe makes exactly 2 dozen cookies and I have to MAKE myself share them with others. The best! Thanks for the recipe!! I think sour cream is heavy to make tzatziki Guess I ll try a little more flour next time. I ll have to scope it out next time I m in town. Yum! I ve never had the ones from Astoria but I plan on heading to NY in 2011 so maybe then. Just the yogurt, garlic, lemon juice, and red wine vinegar. Amygdalota: I love to use it with chicken and steak kebabs. Are you sure you only used 5T flour? Maybe they won t melt so bad. Hi Ric! Thanks Maria for another beautiful presentation! Ίσως το καλύτερό μου γλυκό! Υπέροχη η εκδοχή σας I am a HUGE fan of amygdalota, too. Now, I found the almond paste to be too stiff and I couldn t get it to mix well with all the other ingredients just by using a wooden spoon and stirring by hand, so I emptied the dough I don t have any plain yogurt on hand. Yours have cracks all over them which in MY humble opinion make them more attractive if thats the word to use. I used plain (NOT non-fat) Greek yogurt and this recipe was amazing. So glad, Samantha! Greek Almond Cookies
- says: I d thin it out with extra lemon juice. Just made this tonight, it is in the fridge getting its meddling of favors on. Cookies will still be soft when you remove them from the oven but will harden as they cool. Thanks so much for sharing this. Love these cookies. December 13, 2010 at 7: 16 pm Beautiful Maria a nice change from the usual Greek biscuits made this time of the year yours turned out perfectly! I m with you Maria, one of (if not) fave cookies of mine when made well/quality ingredients. The key is lots of ground almonds like you ve used. But I am so glad you thought the taste was right though because in the end, that is what truly mattersName (required)Mail (will not be published) (required) XHTML: You can use these tags: a href= I remember going to the bakery in Andros every day I was there and getting these.

All the children had to bring in something they had researched and made for the day. Get instant updates of Kali Orexi via or free! 25 Responses to Αμυγδαλωτά But they don t look like yours. I did use just the amount of flour stated. I have never made these, but maybe I will now So I d go with 2 cups Greek yogurt. Thank you 🙂Stupid question. I know what you mean about the cracks I personally like Chobani. Would it taste bad if u didn t strain the yogurt? Thank you for sharing! This is the best tzatziki I ve had in years! Shred or grate the cucumbers, place them in a clean kitchen towel, and then squeeze to get rid of as much excess moisture as possible. Mix together the strained yogurt, shredded cucumbers, garlic, vinegar and lemon juice. Oh my, that s a shame living in San Diego we have a burrito shack around ever corner! And skip the straining process all together. I used greek yogurt and still strained it a little bit, but only for about 30 minutes. I sincerely apologize! Do you leave the yogurt out to strain or in the fridge?
Any thoughts on how using sour cream would work? The flavors are perfect and I m daydreaming of my next Greek vaca I hope that you enjoyed your stay, and have found some recipes that your family will enjoy! I d love to hear your input! Just made your lovely Greek Almond Cookies They remind me of my mom s.
Καλές γιορτές! Amigthalota stand alone! Was this reflected in the recipe, or did you later end up using more than 3? So sorry it took me so long to respond to your question Mary but I didn t see this comment until just now! My favorite cookies are Amygdalota ( Αμυγδαλωτά ): delicate Greek almond cookies that are slightly crisp on the outside and chewy and sweet on the inside. Wish I can have some for my morning coffee nowAmygdalota are a popular festive sweet treat all year round. The 2 friends I did share with both want the recipe. Lugada theme by   Thought i would share with anyone who likes ranch seasoning. I found this through Pinterest and OH MY! Thanks so much! About 1. 5 cups 🙂When you say Dill is that Dill Weed? I like to use fresh dill if possible, but dried dill (or dill weed) is just fine too. This may sound like a crazy question, but is there something I substitute for the cucumber? The only thing I altered was I added little more flour as the consistency was a little runny (could have been the size of our eggs) But other than that looked and tasted amazing. We love them so much and so did all the children. I love the crispy outside and the chewy insides. We love them as well but I have never made them, I will try your recipe, they look delish!!!!!!!! Next time I will indulge a little more and add a couple more egg whites to get the cookies to thicken up a little more yet still retain their light texture inside. I see this becoming a family favorite real quick! I have one question. the cucumbers that I have are huge; Bake the cookies for 10 to 12 minutes until golden around the edges; In Astoria Thanks for sharing your recipes! Does it matter what kind of Greek yogurt we use? Does this change the amount of yogurt or should I still use 32 oz? You re looking at a final product of about 2 cups of yogurt when you strain your own XDNope This recipe looks quite tasty. Thanks for reminding me of one of my favorite dipping sauces, Laura! You can skip the process, and just buy Greek yogurt instead. I would love to make this!! In Lebanon they are made as well, except they are coated with pine nuts. Hi Maria,
Thanks for stopping by. I must say that u have a BEAUTIFUL blog. These cookies looks like the ones we get in stores. so pro!
I love munching on pine nuts. adding them to cookies is such a wonder ful idea! Did not know these were your favorite cookie. Sure doesn t. Feel free to. You ve reminded me I really need to make a batch of this soon to bring to work as a healthy snack with some veggies or whole wheat pita triangles! Made this and between myself, hubby and son it was gone in 1 day! Elly says opa greek dressing. Adapted fromNo burrito s!! I was wondering if Greek yogurt could be used in place of regular yogurt, if so does it have to be strained I would also recommend LEFKOS PIRGOS In a mixing bowl combine all the ingredients and mix well. It was amazing! Also They do a great job with them as well: )Just found your blog and love it! Love how yours turned out. I love amygnalota and I am so happy to read your posting and creation of them. Can t wait to try the chicken gyros! Danyka, you most certainly can use Greek yogurt instead So good made it again today! I found this on pinterest and it sounds amazing! It’s best to refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving, so flavors can meld. Drizzle a little olive oil over the top before serving. Source: Topped with sliced almonds they are the perfect treat to enjoy with coffee or tea and I personally can t get enough of them. In my humble opinion, in Astoria, NY makes the best. Looks like you ve been making them for ions
Let the cookies cool completely on a wire rack then store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks When I tasted it, I died inside a little. Good to know the Eastern Shore has a decent Greek selection since I ve lived there! I thought my version to be a tad bit denser than the version I adore from our local bakery. Maybe increase the dill and add some dried oregano to boost the flavor! I am also allergic to cucumbers and was told by someone at a Greek restaurant to substitute with zucchini. Thanks for the tip! I added a packet of ranch seasoning just to try it a different way. Have never made this before 🙂I try to stick it back in the fridge, but have left it out on the counter before and lived to tell the tale 🙂The recipe looks AH-MAY-ZING!! However, I will say that everyone in my family that tasted them insisted the recipe was perfect as is. Salt and pepper to taste. These not only look delicious but very pretty, too! These cookies are wonderful; Powered by Yours kept the spiral while you added the sliced almonds to the tops. You noted in the post that next time you might add a few more egg whites. Please let me know if you ve tried them Almonds are so fine. Love amygdalota, they are my favourite as well. Εργολάβοι! Υπέροχα μπισκότα, τα λατρεύω! Ευχαριστώ Μαράκι! Wonderful cookies. I think this is the next baking project with the GrandkidsFollowed your recipe to a T Of moisture?? If they last that long! Enjoyed reading this article? Also, a friend upon making them the first time using my recipe this spring makes them on an almost weekly basis now and loves them as is. They look fabulous! Since the batter is pretty thick, I think I will try adding a little more egg white as you suggested so it will be easier to pipe. They are the only Greek cookies my family doesn t make and so I had to experiment a little to come up with a recipe for myself. I think I did well for my first time making Amygdalota and not going by a substantiated recipe per se. Oh my it was great! And amygdalota in a jar are a wonderful gift. ένα ταψί δεν είναι ποτέ αρκετό!!!
πειρασμός με όλην τη σημασία της λέξης, με σκοτώνεις!!!!!!! I love these cookies Maria and haven t made them in so so long! It didn t take away from the dill and cucumber. But, I think it would probably still be a good sauce without them. I ve found myself using Greek yogurt for this recipe all the time now, so it s easier to find than regular yogurt now-a-days! 🙂Great! Consider adding these Greek Amygdalota to your Christmas Cookie Swaps and you won t be disappointed! 1 can (227 grams) almond paste

I thought the Tzatziki sounded way over my cooking ability but I strained it successfully overnight Thank you for your awesome recipe! I tried this with your chicken gyros tonight and they were both AMAZING!!! For reference, I use King Arthur unbleached flour for all my baking needs. Mine had already melted into a flat puddle. Or just be runny? It would be runny. We will make them again.
Thank you. These almond cookies turned out beautiful! I ve made these cookies two different times using your exact recipe and they came out SO good!! Onto the baking sheets (or use a cookie scoop/spoon to do so). For my daughters Greek Day at school. Have any questions or comments? Mine taste great but I want the cracks.
