Ingredients for syrup
- 400 g sugar
- 235 ml water
- 2 tbsp rose water or orange blossom
Ingredients for batter
- 250 g plain flour
- ½ tsp dried yeast
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tbsp sugar powder
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 egg
- 56 g butter
- ½ tsp white vinegar
- 117 ml lukewarm water
- 2 tbsp corn flower

- 3 flower cutters ( large- medium- small sizes)
So first of all we make the syrup: in a pot with sugar add water. Bring it to a boil. Allow to boil for 5 minutes. Now reduce the heat and add rose water or orange blossom. Allow to simmer for one more minute. Turn off the heat and set aside the syrup.
Now we prepare the batter for beautiful flower shape cookies: In a bowl mix flour with yeast, baking powder and sugar powder. Then add egg yolk, soft butter and vinegar. Combine the mixture with hands. Next, pour lukewarm water and mix all ingredients together until you have a dough. Cover the dough with a towel and let to rest for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, divide the dough into two pieces. Then place one piece of the dough on a floured ( corn flour) work surface. Take a rolling pin and flatten the dough.
For making a flower cookie we need to cut 3 large size, 1 medium size and 1 small size dough.
Once all dough cut off, now pick one large size of cut dough, brush the centre of dough with white egg, place second large size dough top of first one and repeat the process with remaining of medium and small sizes cut dough.
Now, put one almond into the white egg and place it in the centre of flower ( as you see in the photo).
Warm up the vegetable oil in a pot. No need to make it too hot. Place flowers into the warm oil and let to cook for 4 minutes then flip over to cook other side, until they are golden. Take them out of oil , place on a kitchen paper towel, then soak into the syrup while they are hot yet.
Keep in the syrup for few seconds and remove them to a plate.
