Za'tar Sumac and Thyme Seasoning
FOR THE SPICE TART: In a small bowl, dissolve the honey in the warm water. Sprinkle the yeast over the water and stir until it dissolves. Let the yeast mixture stand for 5 minutes, until a layer of foam forms on the surface.
Manakeesh are a "spice tart" that many bakeries in the Middle East start cranking out early in the morning, just in time for breakfast. Za'tar is an herb mixture composed of savory, thyme, sumac, and sesame seeds. A prepared mixture of this herb mixture can be found at most Middle Eastern groceries. However, be aware that the quality of za'tar can differ greatly. Considering that the dough is only topped with za'tar, you want to make sure you buy a quality product. One final note, in different parts of the Middle East, the thickness of the dough varies greatly. Feel free to adjust it to personal preference.
