How to make it
- Stir together semolina, baking powder, 2 cups of sugar, and chopped almonds until evenly blended.
- Stir in yogurt, vegetable oil, and rose water until a soft dough forms.
- Cover bowl with plastic wrap, and allow to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Press the dough into a 9x9 inch square baking dish, and smooth the top.
- Score the top of the dough to create 25 squares, then top each square with an almond half.
- Bake in preheated oven until the top has puffed and turned golden brown, about 20 minutes.
- The harisseh is done when the top is golden, and the center has firmed.
- When done, remove from the oven, and allow to cool in the pan for 20 minutes.
- While the harisseh is cooling, pour water and 2 cups of sugar into a saucepan.
- Bring to a simmer, and cook for 5 minutes.
- Stir in 1 teaspoon of rose water, and lemon juice, then remove from the heat.
- To serve, cut the warm harisseh into 25 squares, and place onto a large serving platter; pour the rose water syrup over, making sure all of the pieces are moist.
