    My son and I just made these for a project on Greek culture. Very tasty, I wouldn't change a thing.

    I made these for a Greek-themed lunch at work and they seemed to be a hit! Directions are easy to follow and the result has a very light citrus flavor. I had to make them the night before, and warmed them in the oven again before serving.
