2 Tbsp sugar
8 oz unsalted butter

a hollow container. Fill the container with the nut filling 3/4

a fork. Bake 325 for 20-30 minutes. Do not brown. Cool before

The filling is great but the dough is terrible. It doesnt taste good at all and once you bake them the are too hard to eat. The original maamoul requires Semolina and this recipe doesn't. I wouldnt use it if i were you.
