I made these last night and they were teriffic! I couldn't find rose water, so I dropped it from the recipe and added just a little more Sambucca. I substituted Sambucca for the Orzo (same thing, just made in Italy). Since I live in Denver (high altitude) I added just a smige more of the baking soda. I forgot to toast the almonds, but it was still OK. Also, instead of using flour to roll them out, I used powdered sugar. I didn't need to add any sugar afterwards becasue I did this. This was a great recipe and I plan to make it more often!
