Greek Wedding Cookies

Greek Wedding Cookies


  • 1 pound sweet butter (unsalted)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 3 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • whole cloves for garnish
  • 1 pound confectioners sugar for topping


Soften butter to room temp. Beat with electric mixer for 10 mins till white & creamy. Add sugar, egg yolk, oj continuing to beat all the while until misture is thick like mayonnaise. Sift flour and cornstarch into the bowl and continue mixing. Finish by kneading about 5 minutes. Roll dough into a round log and cut diagonally into 1/2 inch slices and then shape into crescents. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, 1/2 inch apart. Stick a whole clove in the center of each cookie. Bake in preheated oven at 350 for 25 minutes. Sprinkle 1 cup sifted flour on waxed paper. Using a spatula, transfer the hot cookies on to the sugar gently, as soon as you take them out of the oven. Place them side by side, and then sift all the remaining sugar on top and sides. Cool 4 hours before serving. (these cookies keep well, and are better the next day.)
