When visiting Mesogaia Must Cookies… are a must!
They can be crispy or soft but either way, they are delicious and a great healthy snack because they don’t contain any butter or dairy and are ideal for your morning coffee. It is a traditional Greek cookie that is made using grape must which is the juice of the grapes that will be fermented later to create the wine. They can be made either with fresh must when the grape harvest ends (around September) or the whole year round using use grape molasses which in Greek is called “Petimezi”. Petimezi is the grape must that has been condensed into a sweet syrup. Most wineries in East Attica produce and sell their own petimezi but you can also find it in the supermarkets.
