Oranges in Sweet Rose Water

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by mikus

This dessert is very refreshing and a perfect end to any meal. I came across this dessert in Thailand about 8 years ago, since then I've been having trouble finding restaurants that serve this. Luckily it is easy to make!

I had never used rose water for anything other than sent before so it came as a bit of a surprise to me now finding it in so many recipe's! This was wonderful, refreshing, aromatic, and easy to make! Not only that, but orange makes any spring dish look more beautiful!
