    A. Heshmat's Note:

    This is traditional Egyptian cookies which melt in your mouth as soon as you taste it; some times it even melts in your hands before biting to it! Its extremlly delicious and easy to make and bake. Egyptians are doing these cookies for thousands of years now and still doing it in especial occasions most of all the “Eftar Feast” Tips: *Add 1 egg white if it’s not holding it self * After baking slightly open the oven door (1cm) and leave the cookies in it till its rest/cold
