This is an arabic cookie filled with date paste………this is very nutritious too…….my kids love that so much so I thought I’ll make it in home…….there are many type mamouls.Filled with dates,pistachios and walnuts…….here I made with date paste.There is mamoul mould but I don’t have that so I shaped it in hand and designed with fork……………now we’ll go to the recipe……
