Ma’amoul are small shortbread pastries filled with dates, pistachios, or walnuts. They are prepared using special wooden molds. See the picture of molds here.

The dough is prepared from flour, smid farkha (semolina flour), butter, powdered milk, confectioner sugar, orange blossom water, and rose water.

Ma’amoul Bet-Tamer means Ma’amoul filled with date paste, the filling is date paste mixed with some butter. Ma’amoul Bet-Tamer is always prepared in this shape and it is served without dusting with confectioner sugar. See the picture of the mold used to make this shape here (the molds shown in the picture are two sizes, small and large, I used the small one).

    ماشاء الله ، كالعادة ، سفرة رائعة ومرتبة ومريحة للعين والقلب ، وعلى فكرة أنا من زمااااااااان متابعة تحضيرات العيد القديمة ، وأخذت منها أفكار لطريقة التقديم والوصفات اللي ممكن تكون حاضرة عالعيد ، وأذكر مره حطيتي ضيافة الشوكولا من حلويات عمر الصّباغ ، واكتشفت إنهم فتحوا فرع في الشارقة ، بس ماانتبهت ، مع إني لسا راجعة من دبي والشارقة ……

      تماماً، عمر الصباغ هو من أشهر المحلات بحلب، وفتح بالشارقة وأنا السنة الماضية جبت ضيافة الشوكولا من محلهم بالشارقة. وكمان من عندو جبت الضيافات التانية “راحة بالورد” و”هريسة اللوز / لوزينا” و”الغريبة الإسطنبولية”، هالضيافات تقليدية أصولها حلب وشغل الحلبية، و”هريسة اللوز″ و”الغريبة الإسطنبولية” مفضلات عندي وكتير بحبهم، إذا حصل وإجيتي على الإمارات فجربيهم من عنده

      Alia: indeed cookies are so delicious, but unfortunately they are purchased not homemade. And Of course If I find a recipe, I’ll post it on my blog.
      Thank you so much for visiting and for your kind words.
