Eid al Fitr – The making of… Mamoul cookies!

The preparations for Eid Al Fitr begun in the last two days of Ramadan. Together with my family in law we made some delicious Mamoul cookies. A treat that’s giving to everyone visiting the family, together with some Bedouin coffee. These short-bread kind of cookies are stuffed with paste made from dates or a mixture from coconut shavings, cinnamon and sugar water. We made pictures of the whole process, to show you how it’s done and to give you a look in the local life of Wadi Musa. In the descriptions below the pictures you’ll find what is what. Enjoy!
