Gurabia

As requested.

Be warned the dough is crumbly and can be difficult to shape.

Gurabia

C Clarified Unsalted Butter
C Shortening
1 C Sugar
1 tsp Rose Water
2 C Flour
40 Pistachios or Almonds

Preheat the oven to 275 F.

Mix the butter, shortening, sugar and rose water until fluffy.

Add the flour and mix thoroughly.

Divide the dough into 40 equal portions.

Roll each piece into a rope; pinch the ends together to form a circle.

Press a nut into the cookie at the joint.

Place on a baking sheet and bake for 20 25 minutes. The cookies should be dry but not brown (a slight golden color on the bottoms is OK).

Cool completely on a cooling rack and store in an airtight container.

May be frozen.

Andy. These sound great! What is rose water? Where do I find rose water? Is it sold in bottles? What section of the store. Thanks. It is something I have never used.

I had to Google it, chopper. Amazon has it. It's the byproduct from making rose oil for perfumes. It's used in a lot of foods and I read that roses were grown just like wheat and other grains for their varied uses in ancient Rome. Interesting stuff.
I also image Googled Gurabia and got some interesting stuff there, too

Thanks. I thought maybe you could find it in stores. Maybe Whole Foods? Ok. If I don't find it locally I will keep amazon in mind. Thanks so much.

You probably can find it in big time grocery stores, or ones specializing in ethnic foods. It's used in candies, too.

Rose water is readily available at Indian markets. Some well stocked supermarkets have it as well.
