  • Author: Wafa Shami


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup olive oil or (half olive oil and half vegetable oil)

  1. Heat up the oven on 375 degrees
  2. In a bowl mix together flour, oil, baking powder, za'atar leaves, then add the water and knead all together until you have a smooth dough.
  3. With your hands make a small ball and flatten into a circle shape, either with a roller or with both hands.
  4. Place cookies next to each other on a baking sheet (no need to grease the baking sheet since dough already has oil).
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes and until cookies turn golden brown. Can be stored in an airtight container up to a week. Or in a zip bag in the freezer for up to 2 months.
