About Beypazari Kurusu (Dry Biscuits):

Beypazari is a district of Ankara, the capital of Turkey. This biscuits (or cookie, I am not sure in which category we should consider it) is a traditional food of this district. You can find and buy them almost in every supermarket or bazaar in Turkey, but you can also make them at your home easily. It is generally consumed beside tea and its softness can be set through baking time. If you bake for long, they will be more crispy. If you bake for example for 10 minutes after setting aside, they will be softer. You can keep it for a long time in a covered storage box after baking if you wish.
