      Excellent!! I will try a cookie scooper or ice cream scooper next time so that they are all the same size. My mom places an almond or pine nut in middle of cookie rather then the topping. Both delicious!! Thx

      Delicious! I didn't have any orange blossom water so I too used 2 tsp of vanilla. I sprinkled a little powdered sugar over them after they cooled for a few minutes. Thanks for a nice recipe.

      I just made these cookies last night, and I gotta say they are fantastic! I used vanilla instead of the orange blossom water, too. I also used a large cookie scoop to make the cookies uniform. I just pushed the dough into the scoop to form a shell, put the filling in and topped with a bit more dough. I plopped them out onto a sheet and baked them as directed. They came out perfectly shaped! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
