About this recipe: These biscuits are very good; I got this from my mother's personal recipes, originally from a Lebanese woman who was a friend of my mother's. This makes a large batch, so they're perfect for cake sales.
My husband was lebanese, but he always wanted me to cook him these cookies, so I divorced him. - 08 May 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
There is nothing Lebanese or Arabic about these cookies (I am Arab American) But these cookies were absolutely a delight nonetheless! (As one has stated the originator of the recipe may be Lebanese but that doesn't mean her cookie is! ;-) - 16 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I am from the middle east and these cookies are NOT at all from the region...just because the origin of the lady was from lebanon doesn't mean the cookies are! but they are tasty anyhow, give them a try. - 10 Apr 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
