Key Points for Making Shirini Keshmeshi

  • You should keep the cookies in a cool place and a closed bowl for long-term storage of them. Nan Keshmeshi can be stored in a closed bowl for 10 days. 
  • Nan Keshmeshi dries if the dough stays in the oven for a long time during baking. Also, the amount of flour is effective in drying the pastry. 
  • Solid oil makes the cookies more cohesive. If you use solid oil, be sure to strain it. 
  • Remove the eggs from the refrigerator half an hour earlier to bring them to room temperature. 
  • Wash the raisins well before use and soak them in water for a few minutes to soften them. 
  • Sift the powdered sugar so that there are no large grains in it.
  • Using butter makes it more fragrant and the taste of cookies better. 
  • When grinding sugar, put a piece of cardamom with the skin until it is completely ground with sugar (Cardamom gives a wonderful aroma to your cookies.)
