~*My Maamoul Story …

~*Old is Gold… And traditional recipes that pass on from a generation to another remain the most reliable ones specially when it comes to vintage festive treats such as Maamoul!

These shortbread pastries, filled with almonds, walnuts, pistachios or dates when shaped into smaller sized ones with a reduced quantity of filling and consumed in moderation, can be a memorable afternoon snack … One bite and the experience of “involuntary memory” would always take one back to the reminiscence of happy festive days …

 

 

One thought on “~*My Maamoul Story …

  1. Thank you for this. My Syrian friends gave me these and I wondered what they are called in the English alphabet! Now I can search for recipes to make them in return! Also, thank you for your blog. As a dietitian-to-be and having been newly introduced to Middle Eastern cuisine, I find your posts very interesting.
