I made the dough in my bread machine. I had to add more flour to it while it was mixing. When I removed it from the bread machine, it was all puffy. It was easy to work with. I made 8 lahma bajeen. The dough is great (texture and taste). I baked them at 350 F for 20 minutes and then it was not enough. Maybe it would have been better at a highter heat. It's not mentionned in the recipe. We may use less lemon juice and omit the cinnamon. Thanks Jamilah :) Made for Ramadan tag game

These are fabulous! I made a double batch and added a bit of pomegranate molasses and some fresh mint to the mix and I could eat this everyday and never get bored! Made the extra to freeze and have as a convenient take along for picnics or a quick lunch. Yum!

Very tasty! I loved the cinnamon and allspice in the meat mixture. I used the pine nuts, but didn't saute them in butter first. Dough was easy to work with. I made some as written and the rest I added some crumbled goat cheese to. I froze about half of them to take for lunches or for a quick dinner. Made for Ramadan 2009 tag game.
