Unique Sweets!! - What was that greek pastry?

  • 4

Hi everyone! I'm seriously trying to cross my fingers while I type... i'm hoping someone here can help me.

Yesterday I watched an episode of unique sweets from my DVR - it must have recorded that day though or Sunday... Anyway... it was an episode about small bites.

There was a greek bakery on the show call Artocracy I think... and they make a dessert that I love! I haven't been able to figure out the name or find a recipe for it though... for years!

The pastry is made with a dough that contains vodka. You stretch out the dough, then fry it, and then drizzle it with a honey syrup or powdered sugar.

Does this ring a bell for anyone? I love this dessert and haven't been able to find it anywhere in the U.S. I'm just hoping someone here knows the name and/or how to make it. Or better yet, can i ordered it from somewhere? :-)

Thanks!
Rachel

  1. Perhaps Kourabiedes? Or Loukoumades?

      Found it! The company is Artopolis - and it's called Cretan Dimples.

      Here's a recipe: http://www.cookingwithmarialoi.com/re...

      They'll ship it but it costs $15 to ship! :-( I might just try to make it unless someone else knows another way I can order it from somewhere :-)

        They're diples, not dimples.

        This is a decent recipe and fairly easy to make

        My family uses a shot of Metaxa in the dough instead of Raki/Ouzo, our Korabiedes too.

        Not sure where in the country you are but if you are ever in NYC, you should definitely go to Artopolis if you get a chance. It is a real lovely bakery
