Indeed, this is not for one seating but enjoyed over a period of few days.

 

I do not have a recipe as I did not bake them. These were ordered by the powers that be for her friends coffee morning.

 

As a matter of fact she ordered a whole variety of full trays just in case they go out of fashion  :B

 

In reality, most of the quantities goes to charities as it is Ramadan month in the Middle East. We keep a small plate for us to nibble on.

That is really something, very beautiful.

Is there any particular custom in terms of when public food establishments can open during Ramadan? Are there any restrictions at all? I guess it must differ by country, but I am curious about it.

It is beautiful but even more beautiful when it melts in the mouth and crunches under the teeth oozing the syrup. 

 

It does differ from one country and one city to the other.
