St. Sarkis/Սուրբ Սարգիս Special: Aghablit & Marshmallow Halva [VEGAN!]

Hello everyone! I am featuring a video dedicated to a few traditional recipes associated with St. Sarkis/Սուրբ Սարգիս Day, which falls on Saturday January 27 this year. Presenting aghablit and marshmallow halva:
I give a summary about the traditions associated with each recipe--and how they are meant to make you dream about your future spouse--here:
Below are the recipes with detailed instructions:

Aghablit (Salty Wafers/Cookies)
-1 1/4 cup flour
-1/2 cup water
-1 heaping tbsp salt (meant to make you thirsty!)
-Preheat oven to 350F
-In a bowl, combine flour and salt and stir. Gradually add in water until you get a dough formed (you may not need the full 1/2 cup) 
-Place dough on flat surface and flatten it with hands or a rolling pin
-Using cookie cutters, cut into the dough and place the cookies on a baking tray lined with parchment paper
-Bake for about 30 minutes, until golden brown

Marshmallow Halva
-3/4 - 1 cup sugar
-1/3 cup water
-1 tbsp lemon
-2 tsp rose water
-250g vegan marshmallows (I went with Dandies brand) or natef
-1 cup walnuts, halved
-2-3 cups sesame seeds (won't use them all but need a good amount to properly coat halva)
-Place sesame seeds in fridge to cool
-Combine water and sugar in a pot and bring to a boil
-Once the mixture boils, reduce heat to low/medium
-Add in lemon juice
-A few minutes later, add in rose water
-Once mixture becomes golden in colour, add in marshamallows
-Stir until completely smooth (it will smell incredible at this point!)
-Pour chilled sesame seeds in a tray
-While mixture is hot, pour scoops (aim to make them flat & circular) on top of the sesame seeds
-Place walnut halves in the middle of each scoop
-Let them cool for about 45 seconds to 1 minute (will be much easier to roll/handle them)
-Fold one side over, then the other!
