How to Make

  • Place coarse semolina, fine semolina, flour, rainbow sweet condensed milk, melted butter, water, Sugar, Orange blossoms water and baking powder in a bowl and Knead very well with a wooden spoon until they are well incorporated together. Cover and let the dough rest for 2 hours. 
  • While you wait for the dough to rest, prepare the filling by mixing the ground pistachios, sugar and orange blossoms water together.
  • Form the dough into ball portions.  
  • Press a piece of the dough into a flat shape, then add a tablespoon of pistachio filling in the middle and wrap the dough around it to cover the filling completely. 
  • Press the ball shaped dough well into the mold and the tap the mold on the counter so it falls out. Repeat the same process with the remaining dough 
  • Once that part is done, lay the pieces on a sheet pan with parchment paper. Bake in a preheated 200c oven for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it cool on room temperature.  
  • Garnish with icing sugar and the remaining pistachios. Serve!
