    Here is my rating for the cookies. I was having a hard time rating it with my previous review I left, so hopefully it goes through now.

    This recipe was amazing and the cookies melted in your mouth! In the recipe it didn't state how much rose water to use in the filling, so I just put in 1 teaspoon. I also used gluten free flour and in place of cornstarch I used tapioca starch. These cookies weren't too sweet, I could taste the rose flavor and they would be perfect to serve at a tea. I'll definitely be making them again! I think they would also taste great if you substituted the rose water for lemon extract.

    The recipe only lists rose water as a cookie ingredient, but the instructions state to add rosewater to the filling mixture. How much rose water is added to the filling?
