    Yummy. An easy sweet to have with tea. I used brown rice flour to be gluten free and estimated the gram amounts. I think I used more flour than called for. Next time I will pound my Iranian saffron or at least some of it (Iranian saffron is the best but can be used in a smaller amount than called for here as it is more potent than Spanish) I used canola oil (it seemed like a lot of oil to flour), Iranian rose water, also the best in quality, plus the rest of the ingredients. If you don't know how the result should look search Persian halva on Google photos. I will make this for DH insha Allah.
