Greek 'Moschopoungia’ small

Moschopoungia is a sweet and is characteristic of the Dodecanese islands of the southeastern Aegean. It comprises small, pouch-shaped bites made with special dough and filled with almonds, sugar and rosewater.

For garnish, the upside of the moschopoungia is dipped in rosewater through which powdered sugar has been passed. Using a sieve, powdered sugar is sprinkled again and spread out on a plate until dry. Moschopoungia are then wrapped in cellophane to remain fresh.
