Pistachio Baklava Cookies

Pistachio Baklava Cookies

Grind up the dried roses with some of the sugar, then mix with the remaining sugar.

Mix the pistachios, sugar, cinnamon, cornstarch, and honey until combined.

Cream the butter and sugars until smooth.

Add the eggs and beat until fluffy.

Add the dry ingredients and mix it in with a spatula or wooden spoon.

Scoop out flush mounds of cookie dough into a 3 tablespoon scoop.

Add all of the dough balls onto a parchment lined sheet pan.

Squeeze a piece of dough a few times to make it smooth.

Flatten the dough evenly into the palm of your hand.

Add a 1 tablespoon scoop of the baklava filling to the center of the dough.

Close the dough completely around the nut filling, then roll through your hands into a smooth ball.

Roll the dough ball through the rose sugar to coat completely.

Gently flatten the cookie dough balls with your fingers or use the bottom of a cup.

Once baked, use a round object to scoot the cookies, then sprinkle the tops with more rose sugar.
