I first eat them as a dessert in an Mexican restaurant in Athens. After a couple of years I found this recipe in a magazine. They taste a lot like Greek Kourambiedes.

My mom used to make a similar cookie for the holidays and these reminded me a lot of those cookies. Very nice light flavored cookies! I did make sure the cookies were well cooled before dusting them with the powder sugar. Thank you katia!
