Kourampiedes are tiny shortbread biscuits that look like little snow-mounds thanks to their generous dusting of icing sugar. They can be made with or without nuts, and traditionally use roasted almonds and pistachios, as well as dried dates.
Whilst they are usually made at Christmas, they are also offered in a different version as wedding favours called ‘Loukoumi’, because their white colour symbolises purity.
Whether you are enjoying them at Christmas (available in boxes from the bakeries) or as a wedding favour, they are equally delicious and crumbly!
