These Greek biscuits, Kourambiedes, are beautiful rosewater and walnut biscuits that are traditionally made at Christmas but you can eat them any time of year.
If you can't find rosewater, use 1 tsp vanilla essence instead. Also, you can substitute chopped almonds for the walnuts, if desired.
Diana you are right the biscuits are beautiful. I have eaten many bought ones but this is the first time of making them,and it won't be the last as my husband is Greek! I'm going to work my way through your other recipes. thanks for sharing. - 31 Dec 2011
Excellent recipe Diana. I have tasted many of these biscuits but this recipe is the best! My Greek husband was really happy that I made them and it was my first time. - 01 Jan 2012 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Does the rosewater go in at the part of the recipe where it mentions vanilla? - 09 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
