  3. Mix the walnut with sugar and rose water. Mix to combine.
  4. Preheat the oven to 175°C.
  5. Form small balls of the dough. Press and pat each ball and make a hole for filling. Fill it with 1 tablespoon of the walnut mixture. Close it then press it inside the wooden maamoul mold. Flip the mold over and hit the edge with a hard surface to get the maamoul piece out.
