  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 tbsp rose syrup
  • 1.5 cups all purpose flour


  • cream
  • sliced pistachios


  1. Preheat your oven to 150 degrees Celcius 

  2. Add butter and sugar to a bowl and mix with an electric mixer till it is airy. I usually swap butter with margarine but DO NOT make a swap with this one or else your dough will never set 

  3. Add your flour and rose syrup to the batter and mix well. This will turn into a dough like consistency which will be a little grainy 

  4. Now, work the dough with your hands and spread evenly. Get your cookie cutter out and cut in your desired shape and size 

  5. Line a baking parchment paper onto your baking tray. I added two layers to make sure my shortbread cookies do not get brown underneath

  6. Bake for 7-10 minutes. The baking time changes from oven to oven so keep a look your shortbread cookies to avoid them from browning. Mine were perfect at 7 minutes. I suggest the right time to "look" would be from 5 minutes

  7. After baking, leave them on a wire rack to cool for at least 10 minutes. You can later eat them on their own or add cream and sliced pistachios as garnish
