For this month's Food of the World event, we are going to Egypt. I have a ton of vegetarian Egyptian recipes bookmarked that I wanted to try for today, but then I ended up making these easy-to-make 3-ingredient cookies.
Recipe from Suma's Veggie Platter:
Egyptian Ghorayebah or Ghreybeh Cookies (Makes 12 cookies)Ingredients:
- ½cup Ghee, Melted
- ½cup Sugar, powdered
- 1cup All purpose flour
- As needed Whole Almonds
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease with cooking spray.
- In a mixing bowl, beat the ghee and sugar until creamy, about 3~4 minutes. Add flour and mix to form a smooth, pliable dough.
- Divide the dough into small lemon size pieces. Flatten slightly and place a whole almond on top. Place them on the prepared pan. Bake for 18~20 minutes. Make sure that the cookies don't change color.
- Remove from the oven and let cool. Store in an airtight container.
