Nut Filled Cookies

Ingredients

Dough:
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
Filling:
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar

Preparation

1
For the dough, place the flour, semolina, margarine, and oil in a food processor equipped with a steel blade. Add the water gradually, pulsing until a soft dough is formed. Cover and set aside for 10–15 minutes in the refrigerator.
2
For the filling, combine the walnuts with the cinnamon and sugar.
3
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
4
Either use a ma'amoul mold or take a piece of dough about the size of a walnut. Roll it into a ball and hollow out the center. Inside, place a heaping teaspoon of walnut filling. With your hands, mold the dough closed. Continue with the rest of the dough.
5
Place the cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet. With the tines of a fork or tweezers with a serrated edge, make designs on the top of each cookie, being sure not to penetrate the crust.
6
Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes. Do not brown; the cookies should look white. Cool. When hard, roll in confectioners' sugar.
