Pistachios and roses

I dropped by nuba yesterday, and was pleased to see that they were selling mamoul cookies. As I mentioned in my previous post, they don’t always have them.  It’s a really crumbly shortbread outside, with a rosewater-scented pistachio filling inside.  There’s also some kind of jelly component that binds everything together, and makes the crumbly outside and nutty inside hang together.  The whole thing is glazed with a white, sugary icing. 

It’s not the most amazing thing I’ve eaten, but I still recommend it because it’s unusual.  If you haven’t had rosewater before, this cookie’s a pretty tame introduction.
