Make maamoul cookies for Eid!



The end of Ramadan is the perfect time to make maamoul cookies in anticipation for Eid ul-Fitr.

Eid ul-Fitr, meaning Festival of Breaking the Fast, falls at the end of Ramadan. It is celebrated by millions of Muslims around the world.

This celebration marks the end of Ramadan; the most holy month in the Islamic calendar. It is a time of prayer, reflection, charity, and fasting from dawn to dusk.

Muslims celebrate Eid-ul Fitr in many different ways according to social and cultural traditions. However, food is a central role in many of these celebrations.
