*If you can't find rose syrup (at a gourmet grocery), you can make it with 1 teaspoon of rose water plus 3 tablespoons of honey and 1 tablespoon of water. Rose water is easier to find than rose syrup.
Note: This recipe is actually from the year 1610. I had to add lots of flour to this recipe to make the dough handleable. You should add flour until the dough is no longer sticky and can conceivably be rolled out and cut.
The cookies are good and sweet plain, but can be complemented with modern icing and decorations! Try a sweet strawberry icing.
