"Original Kourambiethes have almond added in the dough and usually vanilla extract, rosewater and brandy, not anise or ouzo. Moreover, it is very important that you use the right kind of butter. In Gre..." See moreece sheep's butter is used for its distinct aroma and flavour. And the biscuit should be left to cool before you dust the sugar over it, otherwhise it makes a not so appealing crust."
