Rosewater Almond Tea Cookies

I first heard of these cookies from a photo contest on
the beautiful Palachinka.
They are from the equally beautiful Baking Obsession.
It is a very simple recipe but one of those
fine examples of something far exceeding
the sum of its parts.

I made a small addition to the recipe.
I covered each cookie with a little rose petal
preserves and added an icing made from
confectioners' sugar and rosewater.
And also a little piece of crystallized
rose petal. Talk about gilding the lily!!!

I got to use some food coloring that my daughter
brought me back from Italy. I love that kind of stuff.
