1 stick unsalted butter (114 gr) -melted
2 eggs
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 cups flour
10gr. baking powder
a pinch of salt
20 pieces walnut or almond
2 cups sugar
2 cups water
1 tsp lemon juice

Boil the syrup ingredients for 15 minutes and let it cool in room temperature.
Mix the other ingredients in a bowl and make a soft dough. Take a small piece and make a ball. Place it in a tray and put a walnut on top of it. Heat the oven for 320F and bake it for 40 minutes. Take it from oven and immediately pour the syrup on. The sekerpare balls absorbe all the syrub. Wait to be cool in room temperature and serve.
Also the rose shape that Nezahat's mother-in-law made was very nice. She gives this shape to the dough as follows: She cuts the dough as a half moon with a tea cup(a small cup) 7 times and fold them through inside. You can see the details from the photographs below. It can even be possible to get a perfect rose by adding some colouring to the dough.
