2

Mix chopped pistachios with the dough or you can place one pistachio or pine, on top of each ghraybeh after shaping the dough.

3

Place in the fridge for 20-30 minutes. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Take the dough out of the fridge and start by forming small pieces with your hands. Roll them into a long log, cut in about 1 finger size, then slightly shape into the letter S. Another option can be by simply making a small round ball, and flatten it with your hands.

Continue until all dough is done. Bake for about 13-15 minutes.

Extra tips:
• Make sure ghee is more liquid. You can place it in the microwave for 2-3 minutes but it should be at room temperature when mixed with the other ingredients.
• Another option is to use chopped roasted almonds instead of pistachios. Roasted almonds also bring a different delicious flavor.
• Ghrabybeh might look super soft once taken out of the stove, don’t be alarmed it will firm up once cooled off.
• To have extra nuts on the top, dip the top of each piece in the chopped nuts.
