These sublime wafers are the perfect treat if you are looking for a sweet to satisfy without over-doing it. The lofty texture of these delicate wafers owes itself to the flourless dough, and the ethereal flavor comes from our new Advieh spice blend and its rosewater complement. Try them as a light dessert with cardamom coffee, with your afternoon tea or as an apertif.

The Advieh spice made this cookie recipe!

Walnut Rosewater Wafers

cookie Advieh


  • 1 ½ cups finely ground walnuts
  • ½ cup walnut pieces, for decoration
  • 4 egg yolks, divided 3/1
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground Advieh
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon rosewater
  • 1 teaspoon water


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a large sheet pan with parchment.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the ground walnuts, 3 egg yolks, sugar, Advieh, baking soda and rose water until well blended.
  4. Roll the dough into teaspoon sized balls and place 2” apart on the sheet pan. Don’t skimp on the spacing, these wafers need room to expand.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk the remaining egg yolk and water. Press a walnut piece into each cookie and brush with the egg yolk glaze.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden.
  7. Allow the cookies cool on the sheet pan for about 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

    the Walnut-Rosewater Wafer recipe contains Rose Water, but i don’t see Rose Water listed in your products. where do you recommend that i get it?

    • Sherrie says:

      Hi. Rosewater (and orange flower water, which is also great to use in baking) can be found at your local Mediterranean/Middle Eastern grocery store. Some more gourmet/specialty grocery stores are starting to carry things like that, too.

    These look amazing. I have a friend who is allergic to walnuts. Do you think an alternative nut would work for substitute?

    • Sherrie says:

      I think you could probably get away with using hazelnuts, pistachios or even almonds. (Almonds & hazelnuts might even be easier, as it’s relatively easy to find prepackaged ground almonds and hazelnuts.) Any of those would be delicious!
