Carob Molasses Cookies
Halewe Bil Debs

The halewe bil debs is a dessert composed of whole-wheat flour and grape molasses. This cookie keeps well. Simple, ingredients are all at hand. Carob or grape molasses add a sweet taste; the white imported sugar was rare in rural areas. In this preparation, the mahlab perfumes the biscuit. It is an aromatic spice made from the crushed pit of the black cherry.
