Lawzieh (Almond cookies)

These biscuits look so fresh and appetizing. A light white color topped with sugar powder. Bite into it and feel its richness and generous amount of crushed almonds while the biscuit melt under your teeth like butter. Tasty but not too sweet, the biscuits are awesome. One followed another and a third, these are too addictive. I loved their airy feel, their freshness, their lightness, their crispiness, their strong almond taste and their mouthwatering aromas. Doing some extensive research, I’ve discovered that Lawzieh is close to the Arabic shortbread Ghraibeh only these are with crushed almonds.
