Algerian Tcherek

Cherek2, Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

Salam Alikom,
Tcherek or Kaab el Ghazal as it is better known, is a sweet, perfumed (no not chanel no.5) almond stuffed, crescent shaped pastry from North Africa and is traditionally served during the nights of Ramadan and also Eid.
Check out the recipe and method over at Henia's blog http://simplicitybythesea.blogspot.co.uk/2011/06/tcherek-msaker.
** The recipe uses either honey or sugar as a sweetner, i chose sugar purely because that was all i had to hand. One other adjustment i made because i don't like this traditional sweet dipped in syrup then a coating of icing sugar, i simply dusted with icing sugar.

It looks good, I think I would rather have it with powdered sugar instead of a syrup, too.

Traditionally they put them in syrup first so that when they put them in powdered sugar it coats a thick layer, sooo sweet even for me lol

Masha Allah I remember making these with my sil when she visited and we could not get the sugar to stick! She said it was the wierd English sugar!!....

Thats funny she said that, i wonder if our icing sugar doesn't have cornstarch because everywhere else.does. I found the icing sugar sticks better if you put the tcherek into the sugar while they are still hot but you have to be careful with your fingers, i suppose i could have used a big spoon, duh!
