Edan Alexander’s Nut Cookies 


1 package unsalted margarine at room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
2 and a half cups of white flour
1 bag of vanilla sugar
1/2 teaspoon of rose water
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts


Mix the margarine, sugar and vanilla sugar in a food processor. Gradually add the flour, rose water and nuts.

Roll out part of the dough on a floured surface with a rolling pin to a thickness of 1 cm. and create with the help of a glass or a form.

Place the curved dough in a baking pan lined with parchment paper at equal intervals (3 cm apart) and bake in a hot oven at 180 degrees for 15-20 minutes until a light brown color is obtained.

Leave to cool and store in a sealed box. Before serving, sprinkle powdered sugar for decoration.
