Recipe Corner: Sweet Biscuits from Mediterranean Meals for Mom – The Armenian Mirror-Spectator

March 1, 2024

4-5 teaspoons water for rolling out

Glazing: 1 large egg yolk

Sesame seeds as garnish



Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

In another bowl, mix together the egg, oil, butter, and cream cheese; slowly add the dry ingredients to this mixture, and stir to combine.

Refrigerate the dough for an hour or a little longer.

On a large clean work surface, roll out the dough and shape into desired shapes.

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Place biscuits on parchment-lined baking sheets and brush the tops with the egg and sesame seeds, if desired.

Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden brown. (Baking time will depend on the size of your biscuits and the shapes you’ve made).

*Mahlab, sometimes spelled mayleb, is a small, wild cherry pit from the St. Lucy cherry. It’s commonly used in Greek cooking and it’s also used heavily in Middle Eastern dishes. The cherries’ pits are ground into a meal-like substance.
