Syrian Cookies

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Aunt Paula

My neighbor baked these for me when my first son was born, and they were so delicious. I had to have the recipe. Recently found the recipe and made these for Christmas, adding food coloring for a festive look.

Tasty, but too much work. The cookies baked more like spoon-dropped biscuits than cookies and had a heavy, dense, dry texture. I tried rolling them thin and baking until very crisp, but the dough is so oily that it's difficult to work with in that manner. I could see the oil welling out of the dough as it sat in the bowl.
