Maamoul are typical Lebanese shortbreads, usually stuffed with dates, but which can also be filled with pistachios, almonds or walnuts.
Form balls of about ½ oz (15 g).
Place the maamoul on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and cook in a preheated oven at 350 F (180°C) for 15-20 minutes. Pastries must remain very white.
Maamoul can be kept for eight days in an airtight container.
