For me, Christmas in Greece equals two desserts: Kourabiedes, which featured on my blog last week and got me an order from as far as Greece (!!) and Melomakarona, or walnut syrupy biscuits.
So this week I decided to try my hand at the latter, to the delight of my Greek hubby. I had made them before, the first year we were married but must have used the wrong recipe as I found them hard to get right and stopped making them!
This time I used this recipe from taste.com. I found it pretty straight forward, once I managed to convert my cups into grams, that is :-). I did make a couple of silly mistakes, like using brown sugar instead of white and ended up with a runny mixture instead of a creamy goo but hey, all is well when it ends well, right? And it did, as you can see from the picture:
Kali orexi, as the Greeks you say!

He is, Otilia but he is also very specific on ingredients and stuff, which can be a bit of a pain sometimes 🙂
