Ghraybey cookie is soft Butter cookie which is traditionally garnished with pistachio on top and it is a famous middle eastern sugar cookie which is made in weddings. The flavor of the cookie is the main part in giving them a distinctive aroma which is from rose essence. Traditionally rose water or orange blossom water is used to make this cookie but I added Rose essence instead.This is a perfect tea time cookie , we enjoyed it a lot.These cookies are shaped in different ways like round, crescents,diamonds or S shape but I gave it a flower shape as it has the rose essence in it.
I know you might be wondering what I just took picture with two cookies believe me the cookies where are gone the previous day when all our friends came and we had a photography workshop at my home on some basic of a camera and photography. We had started the session in the afternoon so I made 100 masala vadai and 20 of these cookies, and a "cupcakes" to go with tea which I will be posting for this marathon, I took advantage of the session well for baking marathon ;) We had so much fun throughout the session , we learnt a lot from a fellow friend who is a professional photographer and made our own light box too I have shared some of the pics I took of these Cookie in the session , I don't know If i will ever get a chance to be a part of such talented photographers and I was so happy to see camera's and camera accessories all over my home that day :). Only these passionate people will know How hard we work isn't it. Ok chalo I will go on and on about the session if I start so let me move on to the recipe and yeah I had only 2 cookies to photograph hope I did justice to the 2 cookies ;) ..
