GhraybaThis is a very tasty biscuit that is made and sold all over the Middle East. It is like a butter cookie that melts in your mouth. I was at a friends place, and she had a selection of food there for us. Everything was displayed beautifully and it was as though she had hired professional caterers. Anyway, it was time for tea, and I helped myself to a piece of this fine cookie. Immediately i needed to know where she bought these little delights, and it turned out that she actually made them herself. It so happens that her father owns a famous Lebanese bakery, and this is where she learnt all her skills. So she kindly offered to give me the recipe, and I didn't hesitate.
Preheat oven to about 180 C and prepare a baking tray (lightly grease it).
So what you will need for this:
3 cups self raising flour
· 3 cups icing sugar
· 6 tbsp ghee
· 2/3 tbsp coconut butter
· Pistachio (optional)
Simply a matter of kneading all the ingredients together barr the pistachio, and shaping it. Some pwople shape it as a small circle, then place a pistachio in the centre, and others prefer to shape it like a small pretzel (which is what I normally do). Sometimes if im out of pistachios, I wont even bother, and they taste just as good.
Bake for about 5 minutes, you don't want it to brown. Remove and allow to cool. And there you have it.. Bon apetit :)
