Assalam-alaikam Sister,
Oooooh, they look delicious. My mum's gujerati neighbours used to make something that looked very similar with almond's and cherry. You're pictures have bought back memories. I'd love the recipe as I've never tried biscuits before.

thanks umm salhiah , my dh actually liked these said they tasted similar to an Algerian biscuit called 'magribia' but as mine was thin they better, so i was happy as its not often dh comments on my cooking, although i had got used to the 'silent approval' so when he speaks out he has liked alhamduillah, i have updated the recipe sister, do let me know how you get on inshaAllah.
