Saffron Cookies

These cookies oh my oh my. Goeey, soft, and sweet.

This recipe has been to my rescue the past month! They're the perfect treat to bring on a friends gathering or a movie night.

So easy to make and will be ready in less than half an hour! But if that's too long for you, then you can enjoy them raw.


The dates and walnuts complement each other very well and the coconut gives it a flavor we all love and don't get me started on the saffron! I know it's expensive but after you learn about the benefits of saffron in this video, you'll reconsider investing in this marvelous spice.
