Jewish Recipes --> Recipes --> Purim

Ghorayebah (Bracelets of the Queen)
Yield: 40 servings
Recipe Ingredients:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups unsifted flour
  • Chopped pistachio nuts

These cookies are sometimes served during the Purim holiday to represent the bracelets of Queen Esther. The nuts are the gems. Cookies made of this dough are common in the Middle East.

OVEN: 350 degrees

Cream the butter until it looks almost white. Add the sugar gradually and beat until the mixture is very smooth and very creamy.

Add the flour gradually until a dough is formed, then knead by hand as flour is added. The dough remains very soft. If it is too soft to handle, add just a bit more flour.

Roll in pieces about 5 inches long and 1/2 inch thick. Press ends together to make bracelets.

Place on ungreased baking sheets. Sprinkle with the chopped pistachio nuts.

Bake for about 25 minutes. Watch carefully. They should NOT brown at all. Even slight browning spoils the characteristic taste.
