Barazek (fine biscuit with sesame&pistachio) Zaitoune 500g
Ingredients : Flour, clarified butter, sesame, sugar, pistachio, yeast, water
Authentic levantine recipe
Barazek is a typical Syrian speciality from the city of Damascus. They are succulent fine biscuits with pistachio splinters generously covered with golden sesame seeds. Together with the famous ghriba (ghraybeh, shortbread) and maamoul (shortbread filled with pistachios, dates or nuts), they constitute what in the Near East are called "nawachef" or dry biscuits unlike other famous oriental pastries such as baklava, kunafah, mabrouma, katayef, etc... which need to be soaked in syrup.
At tea or coffee time, the barazek makes all the difference. They are also a delicious gift for any occasion.
