On the eighth day of Christmas… my true love gave to me… Moon over Tunisia (Baharat) Butter Cookies.
The flavor of these intensely buttery cookies is definitely exotic. It conjures up scenes of ancient ruins, mysterious nights, and distant moons. With a generous dose of fragrant spices—sweet paprika, black pepper, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, and nutmeg—these cookies are likely to be like none you have ever experienced.
Unless of course you tried my Garam Masala & Candied Ginger Cookies from last year’s Starry Night collection. Those are wonderfully exotic as well.
