Persian Rice Cookies (Naan Berenji)

Nice light flavoured naturally-wheat free cookies from Iran. They are similar to ghorabeyeh, an Arabian Gulf shortbread cookie. The addition of eggs in this results in a fluffy, delicate texture. If rice flour is unavailable, grind raw rice or cream of rice to a fine powder in a coffee or spice grinder. This is a really light, fragrant cookie and is especially good with tea or (rice/moo) milk. Modified mainly from by Kat.
