In a large bowl, mix the semolina, 1 teaspoon of salt and 30 g of sugar.
Add the butter and work the semolina, mashing it with your hands.
Add lukewarm water and mix until you get a smooth and homogeneous paste.
While the dough rests for a while, mix in the date paste, cinnamon and orange blossom. Prepare the sausages. Take the semolina-based dough and also form sausages by rolling it on itself.
Divide the sausage in the center and introduce the date pasta rolls. Then seal the edges and smooth. Then cut out diamonds (or squares depending on your preference).
Dip the makrouts in very hot oil so that they are colored on both sides.
Dip them in honey, drain and let them cool.
The different recipes of makrout
For the record, makrouts were born in Algeria, Tunisia or Malta. Today they are found under different names: makrout, makroud, mkirat, imqaret and kopardilar.
If these traditional pastries they have their own recipe, there are some variations. We can thus find makrouts with almonds, figs,green anise, with sesame or pistachios. Other recipes recommend rolling out the cakes to form small gourmet spirals, typical of oriental sweets. In any case, the makrouts must be tender on the inside and slightly crunchy on the outside.
