Kourabiedes - Greek Butter Cookies

This family Kourabiedes recipe is made with lots-o butter, almond flavorings, and just a pinch of sugar. They have a velvety buttery taste and tendency to crumble and melt away when you take a bite, making them by far a favorite holiday cookie.


1/2 kilo unsalted butter, room temperature
1 large egg
2 ½ teaspoons pure almond extract
8 tablespoons powdered sugar
⅛ teaspoon baking soda
5 to 5 ½ cups flour
Pinch of salt

Makes about 5 dozen
