Ghraybeh “Sand Biscuits”


• 60 grams powdered sugar

• 125 grams ghee/butter

• 250 grams all purpose flour

• pistachios



1. First you need to mix the ghee/butter with the powdered sugar by hand. Then add the flour to the mixture and mix until it's well combined. The dough should be nice and soft and should not stick to your hands.

2. Place the dough ball into a bowl, cover with a plastic wrap, and refrigerate for about 1 hour.

3. After you take it out of the refrigerator, let it rest for 15 minutes. Gently knead the dough for a few seconds and start shaping dough balls (each should approximately weight about 6 grams), place it on wax paper on a baking tray, flatten it using your hand and press a pistachio into each cookie.

4. Bake in a preheated oven at 150c for 10-15 minutes (but this depends on what kind of oven do you use, when done the bottom of the cookies should be golden in colour but be careful as these cookies burn very easily).

5. Make sure you give the cookies enough time to cool down because they're very delicate and are easy to break.
