I made these cookies a few days ago using the recipe from my friend Nur’s newly launched blog in Turkish. I posted the picture on AZ Cookbook’s facebook page, bragging about my accomplishment. Requests for the recipe ensued soon after, which was expected, I think, not because the picture was grand (you see the same picture here), but because “cheese” in the name of the cookies made everyone wonder how they taste. Cheeeeeese, hmmmmmm. I would have wondered, too. You can enjoy these delicious savory treats with a cup of hot sweetened tea, with a glass of cold milk, or just plain. Good all the way. Nur, thank you for the recipe!
