Iranian Koloocheh

Koloocheh: Traditional Persian Treats to Satisfy Your Cookie Craving

22.02.21 /

The traditional Farsi cookie Koloocheh encapsulates everything that is delicious and beautiful about Iranian culture — great flavours, fresh exotic ingredients, and art. The dough is shaped into discs and stuffed with a filling of your choice. Typical options are ground walnuts, cinnamon, rose water and pitted date paste. Each disc is fashioned with an embellishment of indented circles and a spiral pattern pressed into the dough before getting baked to golden perfection with a magical aroma filling the air. And when the oven goes “ding!” you can finally sink your teeth into a crumbly, melt-in-your-mouth cookie. Try it the next time you have a cookie craving and don’t forget to shop for your authentic Persian ingredients from Saffron and More.

While I think of myself as an Aussie, I’m also proud as punch of my Iranian heritage. So much so, in 2013, I created a business built around the mouth-watering delicacies of Persia; bringing you flavours of the real Iran. I wanted to create a space at the table for the golden-petaled spice: Persian Saffron.
