    This pastry is a part of my childhood.
    Usually made for Purim (a Jewish holiday) by Jewish Iraqis.
    My grandmother made Ba’ba Ta’mar occasionally and I love them.

    A great advantage of the Ba’ba Ta’mar pastry: If you didn’t eat all of them right away you can freeze them.
    Coffee break? Just pull a couple out, pop them in the toaster for 2-3 minutes and you are done.

    Steps

    1
    Done

    Prepare the Dough

    In a large bowl mix the flour, dry yeast, oil, butter, sugar, salt, and water.
    Knead well (about 10 minutes).

    2
    Done

    Let Rise

    Move the dough back to the bowl, lubricate the dough with 4 tablespoons of oil, cover with a towel and let rise for about an hour or until the dough has doubled in size.

    3
    Done

    Prepare the dates paste

    In a microwaveable bowl, place the date paste along with 3 spoons of vegetable oil. Place the bowl in the microwave for about 2 minutes.
    The paste should come out nice and soft.
    * You can also soften the paste in a saucepan on a low flame for about 5 minutes.
    * Check the paste after 1 minute in the microwave and mix it a bit.
    * Make sure not to burn yourself! If left too long the paste will get extremely hot!

    Done

    Prepare the Ba’ba Ta’mar

    It was easy until now...
    Cut balls from the dough mass the size of ping pong balls (about 30 grams each) and place on a floured surface.

    Fill each ball with a teaspoon of the date paste and close well.
    Do so by holding the dough ball in one hand and use your thumb to create a hole in the dough.
    Fill with the date paste, close, and place back on the floured surface.

    Using a rolling pin, flatten the filled dough balls to small pita-like discs.

    * Now would be a good time to preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.

    Done

    Baking

    Place the discs on a lined baking sheet.

    Brush the Baba with the bitten egg.

    Spread an abundance of sesame seeds.

    Place in the oven for 20 minutes or until golden.
    Caution! Do not dry the Ba'ba after you remove them from the oven.
    Cover with a clean towel and let cool with the towel on.
