1 1/2 cups finely ground walnuts

3 egg yolks

3/4 cup white sugar

1 tablespoon ground cardamom

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon rose water

1 egg yolk

1 teaspoon water




1. †††††† Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).


2. In a medium bowl, mix together the ground walnuts, 3 egg yolks, sugar, cardamom, baking soda and rose water until well blended. Roll teaspoon sized pieces of dough into balls and place onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Cookies should be spaced 2 inches apart. Whisk together the remaining egg yolk and water using a fork. Brush with egg yolk glaze.


3.††† ††††† Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. The cookies will appear soft and †††††††††††† undercooked but take heart, they will harden considerably when cooled. Allow them to cool on †††††††††††† the baking sheets for at least 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
