Eid Cookies Tips:
Although many of the recipes below have their own tips and tricks, I would like to include some general tip for you to help you bake your way right this season.
- If the recipe calls for room temperature ingredients then plan ahead and take the ingredients out of the fridge early enough. Butter should not be cold neither on the verge of melting. You can also place the eggs in a bowl filled with warm water to warm them up if you forgot to take them out on time.
- Most cookies dough can stay in the fridge for up to 3 months which can actually gives you time to prepare with the crazy busy last days of Ramadan.
- Make sure to let your sheet pan cool completely before adding and baking another batch.
- Always, and I cannot stress this enough, ALWAYS bake a couple of cookies to test them before going ahead and do the rest of the batch. This helps you adjust baking time, oven temperature, taste and many many things.
- Rotate Pan while baking, this is specially helpful if you have an old oven or your oven does not heat evenly.
- Be patient and let the cookies sit before removing them from the baking sheet. In many cases if you try to remove the cookies right after they are out of the oven they will fall apart.
Maamoul is another buttery classic cookie in the Middle East. Usually filled with date mixture but here I show you some other classic stuffings as well.
Petit Fours cookies are kids favorite especially when they are topped with chocolate vermicelli.
You will fall for these ghee flavored, mildly sweet, bit size Ghraybeh cookies. Very soft with a fine texture.
