    Barbell Bunny's Note:

    My favorite Iranian cookie! These are made from chickpea flour and have such a unique and lovely taste. They melt right in your mouth and are irresistible. They pair nicely with tea.

      These cookies are very nice. I halved the recipe, but needed a lot more oil to make it all stick together. I found that the ones cooked for a lesser time were better. Will definitely make them again cos they seem a bit exotic.
