The Chicest (and Tastiest) Holiday Cookies from Designer Behnaz Sarafpour
Behnaz Sarafpour’s taste extends beyond fashion (everyone from GP to Michelle Obama has worn her quietly glamorous, beautifully made pieces) and clean perfume (she makes the lightest, prettiest flower waters). “I love to cook,” she says. “It relaxes me.” She uses her flower waters in each of these three incredibly good-looking, incredibly delicious cookies, which are also, miraculously, all gluten- and dairy-free. There are pistachio marzipan berries infused with delicately sweet jasmine, coconut squares scented with orange blossom, and tender chickpea cookies with almonds and rose water. They make absolutely stunning gifts, though definitely make some extra for yourself—they’re impossible to resist.
