makroudh with deglet nour



Makroudh is a North African sweet pastry that has a diamond shape, most often served for special occasions and during Ramadan. Makroudh is prepared by filling a dough made with semolina with dates dough usually using the deglet nour variety.
The dough is then rolled and cut in diamond-shaped pieces. The pastry is then either fried or oven-baked.
The final step involves soaking the Makroudh in a sugar syrup. There are a variety of recipes for this available online.
