Persian Molasses Cookies

Ever since we came out with our own version of Advieh Seasoning, a warm yet floral Persian spice blend, it has been causing a flurry of excitement. We sent out recipes in our subscription box for you to make a nutritious chicken salad, a warm beef and split pea stew, plus some delicious vegetarian lentil patties, but the spice has even surprised our chefs in the kitchen. 

We found out that our Advieh goes great in all kinds of desserts, and that's the recipe you've stumbled upon today. These Persian Molasses cookies are out of this world. If you like to bake, you have GOT to try these out. 

 Makes 3-4 dozen (depending on size you make them).
