Oh you read it right, I not only downloaded, but prepared a recipe from the ‘Vegan Yum Yum’ app. Don’t make fun. It could be cool. After all, the recipe called for rosewater and I am a sucker for anything rose.
The hunt for rosewater was a tad on the difficult side. Fresh Market had orange blossom water, but had discontinued rosewater. And Whole Foods… I ended up finding it at Whole Foods, but not where one would expect.
Luckily I called ahead, because I would have never checked the Whole Body section for something that would soon be ingested. And you better believe I fact checked the salesperson that told me rosewater was unavailable in the baking aisle.
It’s all good though, right? I now have the ability to bake with a hint of rose, cleanse my face, and perfume myself and my home, all with the same product.
I cringed when I added the rosewater to the traditional baking aisle ingredients.
The verdict? Undecided. I didn’t love them, but I sure found myself making multiple trips to the kitchen to break off another piece. Perhaps being the baker halted this cookie’s climb to my favorites list.
