I made this cookie twice in a day.
First I tried the one that I think is more traditional, with ghee and rosewater. I wasn't too happy with it and I tried another version that is more modern I think, as it uses butter, vanilla and has cornstarch in it.
Which version did I prefer? The 2nd version :p
My girls love the first version instead. So, there's someone to eat everything.. hahaha
Take note that smaller cookies will bake faster, so, adjust timing according to the size of your cookies, as long as they don't turn golden too much.
