For the dough:

  • 9 cups of Semolina
  • 1.5 cups of butter
  • 1.5 cups of Ghee
  • 1 cup of Caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon of ground mahlab
  • 1 teaspoon of Instant dried yeast
  • 0.75 cup of Rose water
  • 0.25 cup of Blossom water

For the filling:

  • 750 g of Date, dried
  • 0.25 cup of butter
  • 1 tin of NESTLÉ Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 0.75 cup of Walnuts
  1. In a bowl, combine semolina, butter, ghee, sugar, nutmeg, mahlab, and yeast. Mix well. Cover tightly and set aside for at least 4 hours.

  2. In a bowl, knead the dates with butter, gradually adding Nestlé Sweetened Condensed Milk while kneading. Mix in the walnuts and place in fridge for ½ hour.

  3. Add rose water and blossom water to the dried mixture, knead by hands until the dough starts to hold together or forms a paste. If necessary, add a small amount of rose water.

  4. Remove a small piece of dough and flatten it with your hands and place a teaspoonful of the filling. Close carefully to form a ball.

  5. Press the stuffed dough into a wooden maamoul mold to form a pattern on the upper side of the dough.

  6. Tap out onto an cookie sheet that is not greased and bake in a 185c for 15-20 minutes or until lightly colored but not browned.
