Ok, so you may have never heard of these before. That’s cool. I’ve only just learnt how to spell it, and even now I’m not sure it’s right. These delicious little parcels are something that my Grandy has been making since I can remember, so I asked her to teach me how to make them. They are a Middle Eastern sweet treat that come in all sorts of shapes with many different fillings. The ones that we make have dates or nuts and are flavoured with things such a cinnamon and rosewater. They didn’t take too long to make as the dough was super stretchy and easy to work with. Although they did take a bit of practice to get the hang of, they were a lot of fun to make. My favourite part was using the shaping tool which made pretty patterns on the tops. We made them in two different styles so you can tell what is inside each. They go perfectly with a cup of tea and are a nice alternative to biscuits and cakes.
