The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
The dough was sticky so I refrigerated it overnight. I made the dough exactly as directed (apparently this was my biggest mistake according to the reviews). There was no way to roll it out and cut it into shapes, so I rolled into balls as best I could and pressed them down slightly. They puffed up and spread out like cake batter! These were not sugar cookies, they were cakey puffy coookies. The flavor was bland and the texture unappealing. There is too many eggs and baking powder in the recipe.

Eating this was pure evilness. I can't even explain how amazing this is. It's sweet and cheesy and buttery and crunchy and gooey. And evil. I added sweet cheese to the filling, about a half pound chopped up. It's found in middle eastern groceries. And I added pistachios to the top...bottom? Walnuts that are toasted well in the baking process are a delicious and cheaper alternative to pistachios if you choose to add nuts. Spread the chopped nuts, about 1/2 cup, on the bottom of the baking dish before the first layer of kataifi. And add some red food dye to the syrup for a beautiful presentation or holiday event. Do not skip the rose water. I have made this with orange blossom water and rose water combined and the taste is incredible, too. It's hard to find kataifi, even in all the international grocers in ATL. But the search is WELL WORTH IT!

Taco Seasoning I
I have found so many uses for this recipe. I'm very happy to have a cheaper and healthier alternative to the packets. I put this in chili, season chicken and fish with it, put in Mexican chicken soup, rice, everything. I even tried it in not try it in grits (duh). Just be sure not to pre-salt what you are making because the salt in this mix is strong enough on it's own.
