Biscuits With Dates (Sanniyye bil Tamer)

This is a dessert made of pastry sandwich filled with date paste. I made this as a dessert for the family lunch, since I am now in the land of a wide variety of dates and from the best quality.

Ingredients:

  • 500 grams all purpose flour ( about 4 cups)
  • 250 grams softened butter
  • 2 tablespoons milk powder
  • 3 tablespoons icing sugar+ extra for sprinkling
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon of vegetable shortening
  • 1/4 cup of orange blossom water
  • 300 grams paste of dates (as in Maamoul recipe)

Preparation:

  • Preheat the oven to 180 C
  • Mix all the ingredients by hand until you have an even and soft dough.
  • Place half of the dough in a tray
  • Spread the paste of dates on top of the first layer of dough, then cover it wit the second half of the dough and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes or until the top becomes light golden color
  • While still hot, sprinkle the icing sugar on the top, cut into small pieces and serve cold

ET VOILA..C’EST TOUT..
