    Sommer Clary's Note:

    The pastries in Morocco are truly magnificent. They have incorporated French techniques with Middle Eastern ingredients such as almonds, dried fruits, honey and sesame seeds to make their renowned desserts. This authentic cookie recipe is as easy to make as it is to eat!
