Imqaret, a traditional Maltese delicacy. It’s basically a sweet made with pastry and a filling of dates diamond shaped – even though in many cases they are sold in a rectangular shape.

I love them with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream at the side! Mmmm! My mouth waters even only at the thought of this dish! Highly caloric but worth every calorie!

The video is by Anton Dogall and it’s in Maltese but it is very easy to follow, if you cannot understand the language. I assure you, it’s worth the trouble! The video shows the baked Imqaret recipe, but if you want to taste the real deal, fry them!
