Kavala cookies

My aunt İkbal brought me a box of cookies from Kavala-Greece(i have a weakness for sweet!)
they were delicious!
of course i didn't eat them all,i shared it
Here's a description of Kavala's famous cookies on wikipedia.org

''Kourabiedes or Kourabiethes (Greek: κουραμπιέδες) are Greek butter cookies (biscuits) that resemble light and airy shortbread, but are typically made with the addition of almonds. Kourabiedes are sometimes made with brandy, usually Metaxa, for flavouring, though vanilla, mastika or rose water are also popular.

In some regions of Greece, Christmas kourabiedes are adorned with a single whole spice clove embedded in each biscuit.

Kourabiedes are shaped either into crescents or balls, then baked till slightly golden. They are typically rolled in icing sugar again once cooled.

Kourabiedes are especially popular for special occasions, such as Christmas or baptisms (christenings), though they're seen in Greece year-round.
