Armenian White Christmas Cookies @TinaKashian1 #Christmas #Giveaway

 

Hello from TINA KASHIAN! I love cookies and holiday cookie swaps. I also enjoy baking during the holidays and my Armenian family made these cookies every year. I prepared this batch with my youngest teenage daughter, and we had fun rolling the dough. They smell delicious fresh out of the oven and taste flaky and light. The added almond adds flavor and crunch. The recipe calls for rose water which can be found in most international aisles of supermarkets. But if you can’t find it, the cookies taste great without it. 


 

Ingredients:

¾ cup unsalted clarified butter

½ cup vegetable shortening

1 ¼ cups sugar

1 teaspoon rose water (found in Mediterranean or Middle Eastern aisle) Optional

2 ¼ cups flour

Whole almonds

Directions:

Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Mix butter, shortening, sugar and rose water until fluffy in an electric mixer. Add four, mix thoroughly.
