2 cups almond meal

3/4 cup tahini

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

½ cup dates

½ cup rose water

Method

Warm the rose water and soak the dates in warm rose water for 30 minutes until they are soft.

Meanwhile, place tahini, maple syrup, salt and vanilla in a medium heavy bottomed saucepan on medium heat. Heat for a few minutes, stirring constantly until smooth and blended. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes.

Add almond meal to the tahini maple mixture and mix until a rough dough forms.

Slice your dates.

Roll 1-2 tablespoons worth of the dough in the palm of your hands into a ball. Add the sliced dates.

Place in maamoul mold to shape it.

Bake in the pre-heated oven for approximately 10 to 15 minutes until they are golden.
