I don't have the equipment or the rose syrup (yet) but I am very excited about making the Folger Library's 1610 Rose Cakes.  The adaptation is very close; it  adds precise measurements to the original and substitutes a cookie press for rolling the dough very thin.   The original sounds more like Moravian cookies than a cookie-press cookie, but I'm good with the change.

I don't have a cookie press, so may try the rolling them thin thing. Hopefully that will still work.

Making these today! Thanks for the link.

Results

Made about half the cookies into round balls and pressed flat with spoon cooked for 10min.

Made about half into 0.5cm rolled dough and cut into shapes and cooked for 8min.

Both turned out well. I did not brush with extra rose syrup as it seemed like it'd make them too sweet. Used nutmeg not mace as out of mace.

I wonder how thin thin is there---rolling them out through an Atlas pasta rolling machine might give a good result. I might cut in squares with a knife instead of re-rolling, as re-rolling always compacts things a little.

Please please let us know how these work out. They sound wonderful!

I recommend this book very heartily:

https://www.amazon.com/Great-British-Bakes-Forgotten-Treasures/dp/0224095560/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1492026587&sr=8-2-fkmr0&keywords=mary+ann+boerman

Quite the best book by a Great British Bake Off finalist, and the recipes really do work.

I love Nadiya's book for family-feeding.
