About this recipe: Makrout is a traditional North African semolina pastry. Also spelled Maqrout, Makroudh, Maqrut, Mqaret, Imqaret or Makroud. The word makrout in Arabic means "diamond shaped", as are these small delights. They originated in Tunisia but have become popular from Algeria to Morocco, and there is even a variation found in Malta.
Makroud are best fresh, but will stay fresh and solid for about 3 to 5 days. After that they are still edible but will become crumbly. I don't advise freezing makrout as it will crumble apart.
For a nice presentation place each makrout in a dainty little cupcake paper case. Makrout is best eaten with hot North African style mint green tea!
