How to Make Persian Chickpea Flour Cookies (Nan-E Nokhochi )


  • 1Beat butter & powdered sugar together until creamy.
  • 2Add egg yolk & cardamom.
  • 3With your hands knead in the chickpea flour until smooth.

  • 5Pinch off tiny pieces of dough about the size of hazelnuts and roll them into balls between the palms of your hands.
  • 6Decorate the tops of the cookies by pricking them with the tines of a fork or by pressing the back of the tines horizontally onto the cookies.
  • 7Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake in a slow oven (300F) for about 30 minutes.
