pebbles,
You're welcome.
I got mine from a local store and comes from Marocco. They also had orange blossom water.

Try to find stores Maroccan or Turkish, they use this on pastries a lot.

MamaC sorry but just a silly question; if I spray the orange blossom water onto the biscuits once it's bake, how long can I keep it for? As I hv a bottle of orange blossom water and some rose water as well, would like to know what else I can use them on as I normally put them into the batters before baking or cooking... tks in advance

Helena, I have rose water for over 2 years now...
You could use it on any butter cookies, vanilla cookies, baklava, any type of pudding except chocolate, any pastries with nuts.
And of course 2-3 drops in tea.

Helena, as I said the cookies are better when aged few days... the reason is... these cookies in old times were made in days advance the wedding... so the preparation will not be so tiresome.

Even in my region these cookies are made buy the hundreds during holidays and kept cover the entire time. Of course you make sure the cookies are completely cooled before you do the covering.

The sugar may be melting a little... or as we say "the sugar got wet", that's a sign the cookie was not cooled all the way, before covering.
No problem, just give the some more "snow" Smile)

If you eat them the first day, they will be crunchy and sandy... couple of days latter they start to soften up and they melt in your mouth.
Just put half in a tin box and don't touch it for 3 days and you'll see the difference.

Glad you love the taste. My nephew is crazy for these cookies.

OMG!!!!!! Vi if I may call you Vi as well Embarassed The cookies are not really that crunchy and sandy, it is neither too soft. it is nice in a way like it will melt in your mouth. Did I get it wrong? Oh dear? island I know you hv written there that it will be better when aged but couldn't wait to taste it heheheeeee.

and I have given a few to my friend here who is half russian and she loves it. both of us just couldn't wait for 3 days to eat it Embarassed she said thank you to you. going to make this again maybe when I come back from morocco next week for the kids party. my dh loves it too.

All for the best Smile)

Really you did a great job.
Depend how you bake them, some they get crunchy for the first day... then start to get soft.
Or you get them right the first day.

Hey the most important if you like them... and you do... so I say cheers to you, husband and your Russian friend Smile)

PS. Of course you can call me Vi... or you prefer "Auntie" (i'm kidding dont't call me that) Smile)?
