Mamool Ware

My husband’s heritage is Lebanese and this has a great influence in our kitchen.  He is an avid cook and our house frequently smells of cinnamon, allspice, and zatar, common spices in Middle Eastern cooking.  A Lebanese holiday cookie is mamool (many spelling variations) which is a basic butter cookie filled with dates and nuts and pressed into a wooden mold and baked.  These intricately carved wooden mamool molds were used to make clay stamps that I press into my pottery.  Hence, mamool ware.
