The holy month of Ramadan is over and the Eid holiday begins.
Remember the Arabic sweet, qatayef, I posted about before? Traditionally it is stuffed with cream or nuts, fried and served with a simple rosewater syrup. I have made mine two ways: filled with cream and served with a lemon syrup.
And then I filled some with chopped pecans and cinnamon sugar and baked them in the oven.
Once they cooled, I sprinkled them with powdered sugar. I don't fry anything anymore, so my family actually prefers them this way.
Eid Al Fitr is the festival of fast-breaking which is celebrated for three days after the month of Ramadan is completed.
It is a time to give in charity to those in need, and celebrate with family and friends the completion of a month of blessings and joy.
Wishing you a beautiful day and a great week ahead. Tammy
