  1. The recipe doesn't say how much of the yeast mixture to add. I added all of it and then was shocked to see you only add 3tbsp in the video! The recipe also doesn't say to proof the cookies for 30 minutes before baking. 🙄
    I am going to try it again with these additions and see if it come out better…
    I had these cookies at an Eid celebration and they were delicious! I hope I can recreate them.
