    J. Bradshaw Sr.'s Note:

    Asbusa is a cookie that I had when stationed in Egypt with the Army. They are not a very sweet cookie to me but I enjoy with tea or coffee as they seem to accompany them well, so I recomend as an appetiser or a snack between meals to relax!

    3. 3
      Add the yogurt and mix with your hands until the dough feels smooth in your hand. If it feels dry add one tablespoon of water at the time until it feels like pastry dough.
