DIRECTIONS

  • In a mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar together (or use a fork) until creamy. Stir in 1 tbs water with the vanilla and salt until well combined.
  • Mix in 1-1 1/2 c flour until combined (the texture should be crumbly). Then knead in the remaining flour until the dough pulls away from the bowl and becomes stiffer/no longer crumbly.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a blender or food processor, combine walnuts, sugar, rosewater and salt until a slightly chunky paste forms.
  • Pinch off a walnut-sized piece of dough and flatten it in your palm. It should be approximately 2.5-3 inches in diameter.
  • Add a small amount of filling (about 1/2 tsp) to the center of the dough. Pinch it shut, then pat to make a round cookie.
  • Place in a greased/floured cookie sheet or pan, repeat until all the dough is used up.
  • Bake 15-25 minutes, or until the bottoms of the cookies are golden brown and the tops are lightly browned and no longer soft (and the house will smell delicious!).
  • Remove from the baking sheet and cool on a wire rack.
  • Enjoy!
