The Dough
3     Cups     Flour
1     Tablespoon     Instant Yeast
1     Tablespoon     Sugar
1     Teaspoon     Baking Powder
1/4     Teaspoon     Salt
1/4     Teaspoon     Cinnamon
1/2     Cup     Corn Oil
3/4     Cup     Warm Water

The Filling
500     Gram     Date Paste
1     Tablespoon     Butter Or Ghee
1     Teaspoon     Cinnamon

1     Large     Egg
1/4     Teaspoon     Vanilla Extract
1/4     Cup     Roasted Sesame
1/4     Cup     Sliced Almonds


1. In a stand mixing bowl, put 2 ½ cups of the flour. Add the yeast, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, oil and water. Fit the dough hook. Beat on slow speed until dough forms. Add the rest of the flour if the dough is too soft. Beat on low speed for 5 minutes.

2. Shape the dough into a ball. Put in slightly oiled bowl. Cover the dough with a cling film. Put in a warm place until dough doubled in size.

3. The filling: mix the date, butter and cinnamon until well mixed. Shape into 20 inches rods.

4. To form the fingers: on a slightly floured surface, roll the dough into 20 inches square. Place one date rod near the edge of the dough. Roll the dough once or twice to cover the date rod. Using a pizza cutter, cut near the dough rod. Roll the rod with your palms to smooth. Using the pizza cutter or a knife cut the filled rod into 2 inches fingers.

5. Place the date fingers in cookie sheet leaving 1 inch between them. Put in a warm place for 10-15 minutes.

6. The topping: mix the egg and vanilla extract. Brush the fingers with the egg wash. Sprinkle the sesame and almonds.

7. Fit the middle rack in the oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake date fingers for 10 -12 minutes until golden brown
