DIRECTIONS

  • In an electric mixer combine the butter, eggs, sugar, rosewater, and oil. Add the cinnamon and flour, mixing thoroughly to form a stiff dough.
  • Divide the dough into 3 parts and form each of these into a 12 inch long triangular log. Wrap these in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  • The next day when you are ready to bake these "cakes", cut the logs into thin 1/8 to 1/4 inch slices, place them on a baking sheet, and bake at 375 degrees F for 12-15 minutes.
