Easter cookies mix
Easter date cookies are sweet, fruity and indulgent, and invoke the spirit and customs of Nazareth's Christian community.
Easter cookies are made of flour or semolina and stuffed with preserved dates and spices. They are served at the end of Lent on Easter Sunday. Mamoul, another type of cookie, are stuffed with crushed walnuts or pistachios, which are spiced and sweetened. Mamoul are said to symbolize the sponge soaked in vinegar given to Jesus when he asked for a drink of water while being crucified.
Elbabour stocks a range of high-quality spices you can use in the stuffing of your Easter cookies, including:
1) Spice blend for dates containing cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg.
2) Special spice for the cookie dough made with Mastika and Mahlab.
3) Spices for semolina dough made with Mahlab, Mastika, Neroli and rose water.
