Dry cookie good for dipping in tea. I thought of it as a middle eastern sweet, but a friend of mine said they remind her of a mexican tea cookie. It makes a lot, so share them or freeze them.

these lower fat meat "pizzas" are great to take to picnics or on trips or to make for dinner. Keep the family out of the kitchen or you won't have any left for dinner!! The cooking takes a little finesse, but it's worth the effort.
