Rose sugar cookies

Well i am not the biggest fan of sugar cookies . I ofently find them to be un-interessting and fade even though they can be flavored with vanilla or lemon zest. So i tried a new flavor , rose water (or rose extract) . It gives it a deep flowery flavor without beeing so strong and overwhelming , it is subtle and yet it magically compells your palate and takes you on a trip to a magical summery garden .

plus those roses petals looks gorgeous adding an effortless pictursque look to it as a finishing touch .

So enjoy it ...
