    Default Ping George Re: Ma'amoul Mold

    I remember someone saying he had some last year. I thought I was
    clever going to the Middle Eastern market in Seattle when we were there
    to buy one, so I wouldn't have to deal with shipping. They had just
    sold out. He knew exactly why I wanted them, too, with Pascha coming up
    so soon. Would George (I think that's who it was) be willing to send me
    one if I pay for it? Please? I'm reduced to begging here. I know we
    won't have it in time for Sunday, but Pascha is an octave, and there's
    always next year.

    I'm going to try to make them by hand, but I'd like them to look
    nicer than that. ;-)

    Regards,
    Ranee @ Arabian Knits

    I may be the George you're talking about Ranee, somewhere around here
    we've got some of the maamoul molds. Like these: http://tinyurl.com/3cs9d36

    I think we bought them in Damascus years ago but it may have been
    Madinat Yanbu al Bahr in Saudi. Let me see if my wife knows where they
    are and will part with them. Haven't seen them in a good long time but
    that doesn't mean they're gone, just hidden. <G>

    Just went and asked my wife, she donated them to a bazaar at the local
    Armenian Orthodox Church, long gone now I'm sure. Sorry. I have seen
    them on line though.

    It would appear they could be ordered online with 2 day shipping and
    arrive Saturday if you hurry and confirm the vendor can ship today.
