Greek honey cookies or "melomakarona" are a staple in Greek homes during the holidays. The flavors of cinnamon, clove, orange, nuts, and honey suit the season perfectly. Living in the south and wanting to give these cookies a local twist, I substituted the walnuts and brandy for pecans and Carolina whiskey. They're wonderful in the morning or afternoon with a cup of coffee and can keep for months stored in a cookie tin or tupperware.
