Aghablit is eaten on St. Sarkis Day by single girls who ultimately go to bed thirsty. They hope to dream about a special someone who would bring them water to quench their thirst. This dreamy vision would provide a glimpse of their future spouse. If there was no such dream, chances for a marriage looked rather dim.
Prep Time 1 hr 15 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Total Time 1 hr 40 mins
Servings 20 pieces


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour  (I used about 1 1/3 cups flour as the dough was quite sticky)
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tsp salt (heaping teaspoon!)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a bowl, mix together water, flour and salt until a dough is formed. Place dough on a flat surface and cover with a cloth. Allow to rest about one hour.
  • Flatten dough with your hands or a rolling pin to about 1/4-inch thickness. Using cookie cutters or a small glass cut dough into small shapes or circles.
  • Bake about 15 to 25 minutes (depending on size of shapes) or until golden brown.
