Lovely! Very beautiful. I made these with rose petal jam (Greek) found in Persian shops. I simmered it a bit more as it tends to be a thinner jam. I made these as part of the sweet served during Ramadan in my FIL's dewaniya (male gathering). I used sweet butter (unsalted), rose water in place of the vanilla extract, plus the rest of the ingredients. I used a floured glass to cut the tops and bottoms and a floured top of a small water bottle to cut out the top centers, which worked well. I will make these again with the same or another jam! Made for Welcome to Algeria!

I made these yesterday for a Algerian themed talk Im doing on Saturday, they are fab! My hubby ate too many and now I have to bake more soooooooo lovely , I do have a suggestion also- when the dough is done before rolling out put in fridge for 5-10 mins as it firms up better to roll out without cracks in it. I did mine in processor so that may be why dough a bit more soft? Easy to make though Thank you

I had these in Algeria last December and loved them. unfortunately my in laws never know proper measurements so things never taste quite the same when I follow their recipes, but these are just delicious and taste so authentic! Soft, melt in the mouth treats that the whole family enjoyed. Thank you for sharing yet another great recipe!

Simply magnificent! Came out looking just like fancy elegant bakery cookies-and this is the first time I made these! Excellent holiday or party cookie, and easy to make, too.
