With a hint of our chunky peanut butter, your maamoul sweets will taste differently! This recipe is worth trying!


To prepare the dough:

 1kg semolina
 250g fine semolina
 600g melted butter, let to cool
 ½ tsp yeast
 2 tsp mahleb
 1 ground mastic
 ¼ cup sugar
 ¼ cup rose water
 ¼ cup orange blossom water
 Rose water as needed for kneading

To prepare the filling:

 50g melted butter
 500g date paste
 1 cup American Garden chunky peanut butter


1- To prepare the dough, in a bowl mix both types of semolina with sugar, mahleb, mastic, rose water and orange blossom water.
2- Add the butter and knead using your hands until the mixture is crumbly. Cover and leave aside overnight to rest.
3- Add the yeast and knead the dough with rose water until dough is firm.
4- To prepare the filling: in a bowl, mix the date paste with butter and chunky peanut butter. Roll the mixture into small-sized balls.

6- Repeat the same steps with the remaining dough balls then place the cookies on a non-stick baking tray.
7- Bake the maamoul cookies in a preheated 200°C oven for 20 minutes, making sure to shake the tray from time to time.
