Gastronomy - Azerbaijan
Shekerbura (Azerbaijani: şəkərbura) is a sweet pastry and one of the most popular desserts in Azerbaijan. The tender pastry shell is made with butter-based dough, which is then filled with a sweet nut filling (ground almonds, hazelnuts or walnuts). Shekerbura is famous for its trimming shell. It is intricately decorated with different geometrical shapes, transforming this sweet delicacy into a really impressive dessert. In cases when Shekerbura is not decorated in this way, it is usually dusted with powdered sugar. Furthermore, it is always made in a crescent form, strongly resembling the moon, and is traditionally served during Novruz, an annual celebration welcoming spring and the renewal of nature. This sweet pastry can be served freshly baked, warm or cooled.
