This period of the year is special as it defines the beginning of the autumn mood. Autumn means falling in love with different kinds of snacks, especially the light ones that could be great for breakfast and dinner. So, today's Ara'eesh (Middle Eastern Cookies) could be your perfect choice.


4 Cups of Flour

1 Tablespoon of Dried Fennel

1 Tablespoon of Dried Anis

3 Tablespoons of Toasted Sessem

1 Tablespoon of Grinned Mahleb

Some Salt

16 Grams of Baking Powder

12 Grams of Dry Yeast

(You can add 1 tablespoon of Cake Batter Flavor Powder to enrich the taste)

1 Cup and a Quarter of Warm Water

1 Cup of Full Fat Ghee in Room Temperature


Start by testing the dry yeast by mixing them with warm water and a tablespoon of sugar. Place a quarter cup of water aside in case you need it to balance the dough.

Put the flour and the ghee in the dough mixer and use the flat beater, then change the blade and go for the spiral dough hook.

After mixing the dough, if you see that it needs more liquid you can add some water.

Leave it in a warm place to ferment then cut the dough into pieces and bake them at 200 degrees for 35 minutes.
