‘Diples’ – Honey rolls

ελληνικα

‘Diples’ is on of the most typical Christmas desserts in Greece together with ‘kourampiedes‘ and ‘melomakarona‘. I found out recently that in some regions like Kalamata, it’s made throughout the whole year and it’s the typical treat in weddings. ‘My mom made 500 dimples for my brother’s wedding!’, told me my friend from Kalamata, Sophia. The number should be totally true (Greeks+weddings=lots of food!) This dessert is just great in its simplicity. Again, like most Greek food. Even though it looks pretty sophisticated and hard to make it really isn’t. It combines basic ingredients to be found in all Greek kitchens. Honey, walnuts, cinnamon, flour. You eat it with your hands, it always helps to maximize delight as one more sense adds in the experience!
