Un Kurabiyesi - Melt in the Mouth Turkish Shortbread Cookies!

30 mins (prep 10, cooking 20)
5 ingredients
25 servings
In North Africa & the Middle East are many variations of the humble shortbread, they all go by different names but are all very similar in taste & appearance. This Turkish recipe is very similar to my favourite Algerian shortbread called Ghraybia. I also like to make these using 2 cups of Self Rising flour (omitting the baking powder) & to use a mix of 3 tbsp ghee plus margarine to make 2 cups (when doing this I omit the vanilla as I like to taste the sweetness of the ghee).
