Kwarezimal, or Lenten cookies in English, are low-fat cookies that were traditionally prepared by Maltese people to eat when they were fasting during Lent. Surprisingly, they could indeed eat these delicious cookies :) . . . even if they were fasting! Still popular to this day as a dessert or tea time snack, this is surprisingly healthy. The only honey which resembles the exquisite Malta honey is Greek Hymettus, from the mountain of that name. It is now extremely difficult to obtain the real Malta honey (which is flavoured with wild thyme).
Kwarezimal recipe is perhaps one of the healthiest recipes for cookies you’ll find.
