      Thank you for your recipe. The cookies were really delicious, especially with a cup of hot tea.
      They were very tender (I stirred the flour and nuts in as suggested and did so as little and as gently as possible). They were also so nice and buttery (I used unsalted butter, but did include the small amount of salt in the recipe).
      Although I barely squeezed one tsp of vanilla from my almost empty bottle, it seemed to be enough for me because it allowed the buttery flavor to dominate..
      My oven runs a little hot, so I baked my lbarely 1 inch balls at 325 for 10 minutes and they were set up nicely and stayed light in color.
      Your advice to roll twice is right on. When I was packing them in my tin, I couldn't resist sprinkling more over the tops using a sieve!

      PAC Spring 2008: I made these little gems in advance for a bake sale and they were delicious. I froze the rest for the sale next week!!

      The texture and appearance were just as I expected. But, the nutmeg really threw me off. No one in my family is gobbling these down (as I would have expected) because of the nutmeg and I didn't even use the full amount this recipe calls for. I prefer a buttery flavor.

      We've made these cookies for years. The only difference is the nutmeg. They are delicious and so easy to make.

      Well mine didn't look like the pretty picture Um Safia took but then I'm not a baker. This recipe was perfect for because I combined everythign in the food processor and then just rolled and baked. I halfed the recipe and got exactly 15 medium sized cookies but I think I should of made them smaller and gotten 30. So simple and so delicious. I wet some of the conf. sugar and tried some glazed too! Next time I think i'll try making them smaller and dipping them in chocolate.I gave some to our neighbor and me and my hubby both enjoyed with tea for iftar. ty :) Made for Ramadan Tag 2008
