2 cups rendered butter, melted
5 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. whiskey
1/2 tsp. ground mahlab
1 tsp. orange water
Blend butter and sugar. Add eggs, vanilla, whiskey, mahlab and
orange blossom water. Mix in flour thoroughly, then add enough
water until dough is of smooth consistency and does not stick to
hands. Cover and let set 3 to 4 hours. Divide dough into 4 parts.
On unfloured board, roll out each ball with rolling pin to 1/4 inch
thickness. Spread date filling over dough and roll tightly into
long roll (jelly roll fashion). Gently place on ungreased cookie
sheet. With sharp knife, cut roll diagonally into 1/2 inch slices,
being sure not to cut through to bottom. Bake in 400 degrees F oven for
40 minutes. Place under broiler for a few seconds until light
brown. Let cool. Slice through and sprinkle with confectionery
sugar before serving.
3 lbs. dates
3/4 c. walnuts
1 15 oz. can condensed milk
Grind dates and walnuts fine. Add milk and mix.
