1/1 Photo of My Halwa Shebakia -- Special Ramadan Sesame Cookies
This was posted for informational purposes ONLY with a large caveat for ever trying to make these at home unless an experienced maker has taught you! You who continue to make this will be disappointed and unhappy!! Also don't be adding an egg to make something to soft hold together. I have a feeling over processing is the problem as the blades heat up in a short time and if you're using a big motored processor. I posted this recipe with warnings and believe them! If you like or want to try shebakia then please find an internet source; they are out there! It seems my original introduction needed to be repeated right at the top. These are the longstanding traditional Ramadan sesame cookies. While available year round and eaten all year, these are especially important during the month of Ramadan. They give a high carbohydrate kick with breakfast at sunset. Mythis recipe originally makes 100 cookies as we have more guests than usual in this month and we give them as gifts, especially to our single male friends! These are available by the millions for sale on the streets, though homemade ones melt in your mouth. I have quartered he recipe before and for you. You can take it back to 100 or double this recipe. They are wonderful though 2 is my limit; they are so sweet. Due to the honey they keep virtually forever in the fridge and can be frozen in a single layer on a baking tray and then bagged. Thaw at room temperature. I do NOT recommend making these at home as they are difficult and I learned from my Moroccan Mother in law to be. These need to be learned by an experienced maker and adding egg or anything of that nature will simply make matters worse. I posted the recipe as a request with a caveat to the person requesting. These can be purchased online as well. c.\2005
