Mustachudo (Nut Cookie)
Ave. Rating is 2.5 (2 ratings) Add Your Comments and Ratings

Posted by:  

This nut cookie comes from Turkey and Greece and is a great choice for Passover. This recipe is pretty straightforward, though I’ve seen others that involve cooking the ingredients on the stove top until the mix firms then shaping into little balls rolled in sugar or cinnamon. Either way, they taste great.

Serves: About 3 doz.

I prepare similar cookies that goes by the name "musthachionni" with the same ingredients as above and some more.

Yup. Either the husband or the son.Muslims are not above faking “hate crimes” to cover up an honor killing.And that alleged “hate crime” note is a strange one. What kind of person leaves a note written in present tense on a dead bosiaIdl?mphobya is a hoax. But anti-Semitism is persistent and a demonstrated danger to Jews throughout the world.

These are easy to make and healthy. I used Splenda instead of sugar. Next time I make these I will cut down on the cloves.

What type of cloves? What size egg? And do you start the two minutes on the bottom or top shelf? Thanks.
