  • 3 glasses of cretan olive oil
  • 1/2 of tsikoudia
  • 2 eggs
  • flour (for all uses) as much as it takes
  • 1 glass of sugar
  • 1 glass of milk
  • 2 tsp. of ammonia
  • 1/3 glass of “alousia” (we boil water with a spoon of ash and then we filter it)
  • ½ glass of water
  • 1 kg of walnut and almond chest
  • 1 kg of walnut and almond chest
  • 1 tsp. of nutmeg
  • 1 glass of sugar
  • 1 glass of honey


Knead a dough with the aforementioned ingredients. For the filling, first make a syrup with the water, sugar and honey and when it is ready stir in the remaining ingredients. Take a small piece of dough (the size of an apricot), make it round, open it slightly in the middle, fill it with a tsp. of the filling and close it again. Bake them until they brown and when they have cooled sprinkle with finely ground sugar.
