  1. I have tried the same recipe with wheat flour but saffron flavor is predominant with All-purpose-flour
  2. Adjust the sugar according to your taste
  3. Castor sugar can be used instead of granulated sugar. Avoid grinding the sugar if you are using powdered sugar
  4.  Saffron can be soaked in warm milk, instead of pulsing it with milk
  5. Almond/pistachio/cashew can be added for extra crunch and richness
  6. Cardamom powder can be used instead of seeds
  7.  If you prefer to shape the cookies. Leave the dough for an hour and roll it using roller. Cut into desired shape
  8.  Brown butter can be used instead of melted butter
  9. Cinnamon powder, vanilla etxract, almond extract, nutmeg etc. can be added for extra flavour
  10. +/- teaspoon of milk might be required for the dough
