Happy Easter ! 

✨ No Easter without “maamoul” & nothing beats home-made “maamoul” ✨ 

Stuffed with date paste or chopped walnuts or pistachios, and dusted with powdered sugar these buttery cookies are one of the symbols of Easter in the Middle East. Some say that these cookies are a reminder that even if fasting is hard, within it is a sweet reward – just like the maamoul’s outer part is hard but the center is sweet.
