Makmur Charity Sale 2018
May 27 - Jun 1, 2018
Celebrating community kinship and culinary heritage, all for a good cause!
This year, AN@S’ volunteer bakers from the local Arab community will gather at Chef Zan’s training kitchen to lovingly bake Kueh Makmur Kurma (stuffed date cookies) for our Ramadhan Appeal charity sale.
Every year, local Arab households will usher the Eid or Hari Raya Puasa by baking these traditional date cookies. The dough is made from wheat (or semolina) and butter stuffed with date fillings, baked and dusted with powdered sugar for a delicious melt-in-your-mouth dessert, which is a perfect reward after a month-long fasting. The recipe is inspired from the Middle Eastern dessert known as Maamoul. It is an initiative very dear to our hearts sharing home-grown recipe and re-living memories of our childhood together.
These cookies have evolved in southeast asia with a local twist, filled with peanuts and known as Kueh Makmur Kacang (peanut-filled cookies). AN@S Kueh Makmur retains the original version with dates stuffing to stay authentic to great grandmothers’ recipes using only high quality ingredients.
|Box of 30 Cookies @ $25 each|
|Box of 50 Cookies @ $45 each|
All sale proceeds will be channelled to support AN@S’ not-for-profit causes and programmes.
