Hello my friends, today, I present you a recipe from my mother.
My mother is a woman who is from the good old days, where she had to make and clean everything by herself, without the help of washer, vacuum cleaner, electric mixers... she had to relay on
When she gave me this recipe, I had a problem, she could not give me the exact measurements, she relies on her eyes, for me, it is difficult because I am used to exact measurements, I have even a
electronic scale in my kitchen which I use especially if I am making
a cake recipe. But my mother, she
has the skill to prepare
a cake by measuring ingredients just by looking at them.
I think a lot of women
in Morocco are like my mother.
If only I could cook and back like them,
that would save
me a lot of time.
Back to cookies, to be able to share with you this recipe,
I had to do the following : she
measured the ingredients "with her eyes",
when she was finished,
I had to re-measure them with my scale.
Yes, this is the way how I have to do if I want
I like cornes de gazelle كعب الغزال (the horns of gazelles), they are one of my favorite Moroccan cookies, they
have a light texture, the dough layer is so thin that we almost don't feel its presence in our mouth.They are stuffed with almonds, sugar, cinnamon and blossom water.I tried to make them my way a
little bit,the result was awesome.
