Greek Party Goodness – Divine Kourabiedes Shortbread


For many Australians with a European background, nothing says celebration like traditional shortbread.  From delicate German shortbreads to heavy Greek Kourabiedes, shortbread biscuits represent celebration cooking unlike any other.  Here is our best recipe for traditional Greek Kourabiedes - but we are sure that there are many versions of this recipe that could be shared by many families - we would love to hear from you!

250g unsalted butter
½ cup (80g) icing sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 tablespoons brandy
1 egg yolk
2½ cups (375g) plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
100g almond meal
sifted icing sugar, for dusting
Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly grease a baking sheet.

Beat butter and sugar until light and creamy. Add vanilla essence, brandy and egg yolk. Beat a further 30 seconds.

Fold through sifted flour, baking soda and almond meal. Take scant tablespoons worth of the mixture and roll. Curve into a crescent shape and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

When cooled, dust liberally with icing sugar. 

Enjoy at special occasions and whenever you feel like a fabulous, fun, Greek hit of goodness.
