MELOKARONA (Greek Honey Cookies)

Recipe By:
Serving Size: 4
Preparation Time :0:00
Categories: Cookies


1 egg yolk
1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp. orange juice
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
1 1/4 cups butter --melted and cooled
3 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 cup honey
1/2 cup water


Combine the egg yolks, orange juice, sugar and orange peel. Mix well.

Gradually add the butter and continue blending until the mixture is as thick as mayonnaise. Sift the flour with the baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices. Mix the dry ingredients into the egg mixture and knead the dough until smooth. It will be stiff.

Pick up a tablespoon of dough. Squeeze slightly to form an egg shape.

For a filled cookie, press a few pieces of nuts into the center of the dough before shaping it. Place the cookies on ungreased baking sheets, press each cookie slightly with a fork. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or until slightly browned.

Bring honey and water to a boil, then let it simmer gently. When cookies are baked, dip each one in the syrup for a few seconds, place on a wire rack to drain. Sprinkle the cookies with the nuts. Cool. Makes about 50 cookies. These take a little time, but are well worth it.
