Makroudh (Arabic: مقروض, Maltese: maqrut) is a cookie from the cuisines of the Maghreb and Malta. It is filled with dates and nuts or almond paste, that has a diamond shape – the name derives from this characteristic shape.
It is popular in the Maghreb where there are many varieties of Makroudh, some of which are pastries that do not share much in common with the traditional Makroudh except the shape. In Algeria, they may be filled with almond paste.
Makroudh is prepared by filling a dough made with semolina, usually using the Deglet Nour date variety. The dough is then rolled and cut into diamond-shaped pieces. The pastry is then either fried or oven-baked. The final step involves soaking the makroudh in a sweet syrup.
