Mahleb is a Turkish spice made from a wild sour cherry that is used in Middle Eastern cooking such as breads, cookies, and biscuits. It can be found in Lebanese, and Syrian cookies. The powdered powder has a fine meal consistency, a bitter flavor, and an almond or cherry aftertaste.
It is most commonly used in sweets and to flavor Easter buns. Mahlab is a perfect addition to a variety of delicacies, including cakes, cookies, pies, brownies, cream, muffins, cheese, fruit salad, and chocolate preparations.
