Middles Eastern Za’atar pinwheels

Mar

This recipe is one of the dearest recipe to my heart, it reminds me with my lovely mother who influenced me a lot with her tasty food, and this recipe is one of that recipes that MOM used to prepare as soon as the Spring arrives, because Spring is the official season of collecting Za’atar ; which is an arabic name for Oregano that grows throughout hills and mountains of Jordan and Palestine. When spring is there in Jordan villagers used to spread out throughout mountains looking for fresh Za’atar and other wild herbs that was just founded there, I still remember that old days when my MOM, Grandma, me and my sisters were having fun walking throughout the hills and trying to pick as much as we can of these herbs, unfortunately, old days never come back 😦 .
