At least 20 times I returned today this recipe! Sounds incredibly tempting, especially since I ate melomakaroni and I definitely like. A picture is very, very nice!

For my man holidays start melomakarona, these are his favorite, the house smelled during the night of cinnamon and honey, easy to do!

They look so appetizing!

very *contagious* sweet.In Greece, I can not stop eating them :))

This is a great recipe!

Thanks deny_samy now do the second dose for the New Year that the first dose could not do mine with a dose holidays!

I do it because I can not stop eating.

I made them for Christmas. Are amazing, the house three days wow honey, cinnamon and generally nice! I followed the recipe absolutely no change, only walnuts not reached me, I went 600 g, as I otarkalyah them from all sides. And the pictures I have only my memorikartata is not available at the moment. Flower, Philip said he never ate more delicious melomakaroni :) And my opinion is such. The more you stay, the more delicious become! Are now one week and super. They left my number 44, just 2 pans, but I were done large.

Raleigh, I'm glad that you appreciated the recipe I made 3 doses and there was nothing so far.

Roughly how many sweets out of a proportion?

40 - 50 pieces depending on the size, I have already forgotten and here comes time for them.

color, very tasty and aromatic! First I thought to do half proportion, but in the end I did a whole and not at all sorry. Will see my discerning guests what they say.

are very beautiful and how many units have become, I'll do them after 20 December then I will in Bulgaria to pamper little children.

They walked 67, but I purposely made them smaller - put 1 walnut half instead of two. Also put half semolina (semolina flour), half the flour.
