the moment i set my eyes on the recipe, i knew i had to make them rightaway. and to be honest, incorporating rose into cookies did not cross my mind even though i love them in mousses, cakes, puddings and even beverages. but once i tasted them, it was really no turning back.
recipe uses a whole cup of dried rose petals and just in case if you're wondering what one cup of it would taste in just 20 pcs of cookies - would they be overwhelming or even dry, then let me assure you they taste perfectly fine! in fact i was rather worried at first since a cup is really quite alot but my worries were unfounded. these cookies were really yum. crisp, buttery and the raspberry-flavored cranberries added a nice tangy bite. the reason why i used raspberry-flavored ones was coz i wanted the cookies to be ispahan-ish but unfortunately the raspberry aroma didn't really shine through. but who cares, the cookies were fun to eat and pretty to look at and thats all it really matters :) hubby, who's usually not a fan of rose or "anything floral" gobbled at least 6 of them in a sitting. if you're a rose fanatic just like me, then you really hv to make these!
