1. Heat oven to 325 degrees and place rack in the center of the oven.
2. Using a stand mixer with the whisk attachment or sturdy hand-held mixer, whip the butter on high speed until fluffy, creamy and pale, about six minutes. Stop and scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula for even whipping. Add the sugar and orange blossom water and whip until well combined and fluffy. On low speed, slowly blend in the flour, ½ cup at a time.
3. Handle the dough as gingerly and swiftly as possible to shape the cookies. Take a large handful of the dough and shape it into a log about 1-inch tall and wide (this is pretty narrow!) on a lightly floured work surface. If the dough is crumbly, gently push it together. Use a sharp knife to cut ½-inch pieces diagonally (these are quite small; they expand when baked).
4. Place the diamonds on a parchment-lined heavy sheet pan and bake until the cookies are baked through but still pale, about 18-20 minutes. The cookies should not be browned except for very minimally on the bottom.

1. Using a hand-held or stand mixer, beat the butter until it is light, fluffy, and holding peaks like whipped cream, about 6 minutes. Enjoy the beauty. Add the vanilla, orange blossom water, and 3 tablespoons of the sugar and beat for another couple of minutes.
2. Sift in the flour and gently incorporate it into the butter with a wooden spoon. Add the milk, and then add more flour by the tablespoon until, as Sitto says, “the dough is ready to shape.” That means you should be able to make a ball that will flatten in your floured palm without melting into your hand or without cracking. Get your hands into the dough and knead it for a minute or two. Chill the dough for 30 minutes.
3. Make the filling by processing the nuts until they are nearly-finely ground. Don’t take them too far or they will become paste. The nuts can also be finely chopped by hand. In a small bowl, combine the nuts with 3 tablespoons of sugar and 1 teaspoon orange blossom water, using your fingers to evenly distribute everything.
4. Line two heavy baking sheets with parchment or Silpats. Pre-heat the oven to 325⁰F.

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare a large cookie sheet with greased parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl add in all the dry ingredients, mix then add in the soften butter, milk, and rosewater or blossom water. Using your hands, mix the dough together until it has totally formed into a big ball of grainy dough.
3. You can begin using the dough immediately to fill in and shape your cookies. First, begin by forming a 2 inch ball of dough. With your index finger poke into the center of the round dough and gently form a deep hole enough to add the filling. Fill the center with a 1 inch ball of date paste or a spoonful of the ground pistachio or walnut mix. Gently fold in the dough and close it to form a ball again.
4. Place the stuffed dough ball into the cookie mold and press down using the palm of your hand. Now, turn your mold and tap it firmly on to greased parchment paper until the cookie falls out. Repeat the steps to do the rest of your cookies with desired filling. Bake for 18-20 minutes then broil on high for 1-2 minutes or until golden brown.
