"The smell of this amazing cookies brings back many memories, and takes me back on a trip to my country, Syria, where families will be very busy while they making this cookies, and everybody gave hand and help somehow, in Syria we bake these cookies on multiple occasions such as Christmas, Eid al-Fitr, Easter and Eid al-Adha. Previously, the people of the villages used to bake this cake because the cost is reasonable, and it does not need to be filled with nuts or dates as Ma'amoul."
