Dear Friends,

It is that time of year again--our annual Christmas Arabic Sweets Sale!

Our Holy Transfiguration Church Ladies Guild is currently busy planning for this special event. We bake these delicious Arabic pastries in our church kitchen, package them in attractive see-through trays, and make them available to all of you to purchase for yourselves. They also make wonderful gifts for those you know will appreciate such a special and unique gourmet gift.  The funds raised from this bake sale are used to contribute to our parish's needs as well as to all the charitable endeavors our Ladies Guild supports.  

We are offering the same mouth-watering Sweets as last year, including our popular classics--2-layer and 1-layer boxes of Mixed Variety (a sample of most of the items we make) and All Baklawa (a sample of our different baklawa varieties).  We will keep the Sweets that you have come to love, such as delectable Chocolate Hazelnut Birds' Nests, Baklawa Walnut Triangles, and Barazek (a flat butter cookie dipped in sesame seeds and ground pistachios).  However, this year we are also offering something new and tasty--Baklawa Almond Turbans--filo nests filled with almonds, chocolate, and coconut--definitely worth a try!  (Click  HERE  to see the many different kinds of sweets that we make.)

So, if you enjoy these wonderfully delicious Arabic Sweets (such as various Baklawa varieties, date, walnut, or pistachio-filled butter-rich Maamoul, coconut Makroons, pecan Daaboulehs (puffs), and Ghraybeh), we invite you to order as soon as possible to ensure we prepare enough sweets to satisfy your personal and gift-giving needs. If you have family or friends who would also like to place an order, feel free to have them check this website or call or email me.  I will be glad to be of assistance.
