Ingredients:  
1 lb. unsalted butter (room temperature)
1 lb. chopped almonds
2 egg yolks
3 cups confectioner’s (powdered) sugar, separated
1 tsp vanilla
3-5 cups flour

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Beat the butter slowly for 15 minutes. I used an electric mixer for this on a medium low speed setting. Slowly add the two egg yolks, 1 cup confectioner’s sugar, vanilla, and a little of the flour. Continue to beat, slowly adding the chopped almonds and more flour, until a soft dough forms. Scrape the sides of the bowl periodically to make sure all ingredients are well mixed. You want the dough to be pliable and easy to form without being too greasy/buttery. Roll the dough into crescent or round shapes. I used a little less than 2 tbsp of dough per cookie. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 15-25 minutes in a 350 degree oven till lightly golden. Remove cookies from the oven.
Allow to cool...

Generously coat with the sugar, not just a little sprinkle. So don’t be shy with it—powder away!

My friend brought some of these cookies back from Greece when she went. She says that this is the closest recipe to the ones that you buy in the bakeries in Greece. They are soooo delicious!
