Bastooq el Tamer (Dates with biscuits)

This was the first Bahraini traditional sweet (dessert) that I have tried when I arrived to Bahrain 12 years ago. It consists of plain coarsely crushed biscuits mixed with dates paste and some nuts. It’s a very easy recipe to make. It’s great with a cup of coffee for any day and any time.

Ingredients

  • 1 pack Marie or any brand similar (about 200gm)

  • 500gm Dates paste

  • ½ cup almonds or walnuts, finely chopped

  • ½ cup butter

  • 1 tsp cinnamon+ ½ tsp cardamom powder

  • Some icing sugar for dusting over the dessert

Method

  • 1.

    In a deep sauce pan, melt butter. Add dates paste and stir over low heat till dates paste in soft.

  • 2.

    Add nuts and spices and mix well.

  • 3.

    Add crushed biscuits. Stir well

  • 4.

    Spread the mixture in a 9 x 11 inch 2 inch deep plate. Keep in fridge for ½ an hour or so.

  • 5.

    Sprinkle icing sugar over the top using a siever. Cut into diamond-shapes pieces and arrange in a nice serving plate.
