I got this recipe from one of my close spark friends, ISLANDSHARON.
When I mentioned to her that we were going out for mediterranean food for father's day, she said that she would love some baklava and then asked if I'd ever made these cookies. These are easier to make than baklava but are very reminiscent of the flavor. They have pistachios and rosewater encased in a nice buttery cookie.

    These look like the best cookies....when are you going to find a commercial kitchen and start your side business! I love baklava! I remember being in Greece and walking down the street and peering into a shopfront/stall and the man beckoned me to come into the "back" and he had tables of fresh baklava. It was the absolute best!!!!

    I was just wondering what you were doing on the cookie front! They do look good, but I think I would pass... baklava is way to rich for me. Are these as rich?

    They need to make an emoticon that emphasizes triple drool or a ravenous animal. Wow, these are beautiful!

    These look tasty. They are made with dates here, possibly rosewater. No powdered sugar. I don't think I've ever had any with pistachios. Not really my favorite - give me baklava or similar any day. But I'm not making it! LOL

    Not sure where these originated, but I know that they are made here by people of middle east descent. I never really took to them, maybe because my sweet tooth wasn't quite satisfied...
Maybe you next project could be cookies from around the world...?
