Gotta have some. No ifs, ands, or buts.
With your syrup so sweet
You make our Ramadan complete
How we love you to fill our guts.
Store bought to avoid all the fuss.
Taken home to stuff,
I get more than enough.
You freeze well, a definite plus.
Just the sight of you makes us swoon.
Bring it on, bring it on!
How we love Ramadan!
Feasting nights follow fasting afternoons.
Or chopped walnuts are sure to please.
With syrup scented with rose
All lined up in rows
Two choices so no one disagrees.
I must pace myself, it’s still the first week.
Fried or baked after basted,
No morsel shall be wasted.
I’ve got the rest of the month to critique.
I could go on til the morning light!
Your taste I adore.
Oh, okay, just one more.
I’m not just saying that to be polite.
Oh my, how can I go on….you have made my siliva glands work overtime!! Aweosme my friend x
That was awesome 😦 xxxx LOL
Thanks, Buttercup! Yes, they are mouth watering.
You made my day. That was amazing 🙂
are you in the states now? can you find them in any Arab bakeries? I know we could find them in California. Glad you liked it, I will feel just awful if you don’t get to have any this Ramadan.
I live in a small city in Missouri. Unfortunately, the Arab bakeries don’t sell them 😦
I have not eaten Gtayef this Ramadan, yet… tears 😦
But thanks for the pictures though 🙂
good god!!!! they look so yummmmyyyyyyy… me wants too!!!! 🙂
Have fun with those wow goodies, Joyce…. sluurrrpppp
oh, they are. i wish i could share them with you!
Hey Joyce, ever tried Nutella filled atayef? I get the mini ones (3asafeeri) and fill them with Nutella 😀 (my next plan is to try adding chopped hazelnuts 😉 )
Also, someone once told me they make an apple/cinnamon filling too, that’s like Ramadan-style apple pie 🙂
Love the ode!
That sounds tasty! My kids don’t care for the 3asafeeri because the cream is never sweetened then they get all sticky with the syrup. I might just try that. Or maybe add some nutella to Dream Whip and dip it in crushed hazelnuts! What an inspiration!
help visit a long time Poets Rally member celebrate her twin babies’ birthday today,
all the best!
Thank you in advance!
cute and sweet post!
Once I put chocolate chips in the walnut mixture and left out the cinnamon. Added coconut. It was a big hit!
you have an adventurous crowd. i would love to try it. everyone at my house is so traditional, no room for innovation!
Those pictures are making me hungry. Nice poems!

One week into Ramadan and I haven’t yet got my fill of atayef.
