It's best to make these cookies the day before the wedding.
Greek Clove Wedding Cookies
1 pound unsalted sweet butter
1 egg yolk
1/4 cup orange juice
3 3/4 cups flour
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup whole cloves
1 lb confectioners sugar
Soften the butter, and beat it until it's creamy. Add in the egg yolk, orange juice and sugar. Now sift in the flour and add the sugar. Add in the cornstarch.
Knead the dough for 5 minutes, then roll into a log. Cut diagonally into 1/2 inch circles. Shape each slice into a crescent moon. Put them onto a cookie sheet and add a clove to each.
