Easy to Make, No Bake Date Pastries

1/4 cup ghee or clarified butter
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cardamom ground
3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 cups chopped pitted dates like Medjool

In a small saucepan melt the ghee and add the nutmeg and cardamom and leave aside. Place the flour in a heavy bottom pan and heat it in medium heat until it has toasted and has become lightly brown, stir continuously to avoid it from getting burned.
When the flour is ready add the dates and continue mixing the dates with the flour. Then pour the warm melted butter on top and mix well. When cool enough to handle, but still warm knead to make a dough and roll out on a working surface. Use a cookie cutter and cut into desired shapes.
This recipe for Date Pastries or Batheeth is adapted from the Modern Flavours of Arabia book and is made to celebrate the National Medjool Date Day.
