  • 1 egg white
  • 20g plain flour
  • rose water

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:8hr drying  ›  Ready in:8hr35min

I really liked the end result but found it a tricky dough to get right. On the given quantities it was too sticky to even begin rolling so I added more flour/icing sugar. I also added a chocolate icing which went down well. - 07 Jan 2012
