    lemoncurd's Note:

    These cookies are made all over the Middle East. Each country and each household has their favourite recipe. The traditional shape is a horse shoe with the 2 ends pinched together and a nut is placed where they meet. I only do that if I am receiving guests or for a special occasion.

      Lemoncurd, these cookies are beautiful. I made my own ghee for these, and was amazed at how simple it all was! Smooth and buttery with an exotic hint of cardamom, these will make a perfect addition to my Christmas cookie bags. Thanks for the recipe!

      Fabulous, Fabulous, Fabulous! Used walnuts and even though I used the cardamom, I also added about 1/4 teaspoon orange blossom water. Thanks for sharing, Lemon! cg ;)
