Try these traditional Greek cookies at your next party.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of Greek almond shortbread cookies, called kourabiedes. These powdered-sugar-covered cookies are typically served around Christmas, but it's not unusual to see them year-round. These cookies are simple to make at home, with just a few basic ingredients plus almond or vanilla extracts (or brandy), almonds, cloves, and powdered sugar.
