A combination of fragrant rosewater-like sweetness and a nutty and faintly bitter, but not unpleasant aftertaste. Used in breads, biscuits and less sweet cakes and pastries. It is well worth experimenting with this unfamiliar but intriguing flavoring. A traditional Greek Easter bread is flavored with mahlab and decorated with colored eggs.
If you want to make cookies that taste perfect, there’s no other ingredient that can make or break that deal!
