• Cut dough and form into round patties and stuff them with finely cut almonds mixed with sugar and rose and orange water.
• Make them look like a kibbi mold or have an oval shape, or have both shape represented.
• Bake the same as Patties and Cakes Stuffed with dates, but oven should be hot.
• Serve this cold and serve with it the syrup mixed with root of soapwort, but have syrup in a separate container.
Additional Notes
Its a good idea to have multiple pans going at one time to make the cook ... otherwise the 2 hours could turn into a half a day. :)
