Vegan Powderies (Armenian Tea/Coffee Cookies) Recipe!

I am dedicating my second YouTube video to powderies, also known as Armenian tea or coffee cookies! I will include the video at the bottom of this post, and below is the recipe for easy baking:

What you need:
-1/2 block of vegetable shortening
-2 cups flour
-1/2 cup crushed walnuts or almonds
-1/2 cup powdered sugar + extra for coating
-1/2 shot ouzzo (optional)
-1/2 tsp baking soda
-2 TBSP lemon juice

-Soften block of vegetable shortening with hands
-Add sugar and work it in the mixture
-Add some of the flour (you add it gradually throughout the process) & keep working it in
-Add the ouzzo, mix it in and add more flour
-Add the lemon juice to the baking soda, stir it, and pour it into your dough
-Mix it well and add more flour
-Add walnuts and mix them in very well and then add the rest of the flour
-Gather all of the dough from the sides of your bowl and work it in a final time--you should be able to form shapes without it falling apart
-Preheat oven to 350F
-Roll the dough into circles or ovals (or whatever shape you prefer!)
-Place them all on the tray, lower the oven temperature to 250F and cook for about 35-40 minutes, checking around the 35 mark. The bottom of the cookies should be somewhat pink in color
-Let them cool completely (I forgot to mention that in my video). Otherwise they will melt the sugar you coat them with!
-Add powdered sugar to a bowl or container, and place the cookies in, coating them generously
-Set them aside--they taste even better the next day!

I hope you enjoy this recipe a much as I did! Below is the video that includes a mini how-to on Armenian coffee and coffee cup readings:
