    I don't have a clue what ghee is or where to buy it or orange blossom water. I am reading "The Face" by Dean Koontz and one of the characters is eating these and can't shut up about them! So, I just HAVE to make them and will search high and low for the ingredients. Then I'll come back and tell you guys what I think about these:) They sound wonderful.
