GHOURIBI - MOROCCAN SUGAR COOKIES
 
MAKES ABOUT 30
INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 cup vegetable oil or butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • ¹/³ cup finely ground walnuts or almonds
  • Cinnamon
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly flour an ungreased cookie sheet
  2. Place oil and sugar in a large bowl and mix well. Gradually add the flour, a cup at a time, and knead well. Blend in the nuts.
  3. When the dough feels smooth, use the palm of your hand to roll it into balls the size of an egg. Pat into a round cookie about 2 inches in diameter. The cookie should not be flat.
  4. Place on the cookie sheet and sprinkle the center of each cookie with cinnamon. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Do not let the cookies become even slightly brown; they must remain off-white.

Variations:
A Turkish variation uses cocoa instead of cinnamon and is sprinkled with powdered sugar. These cookies can also be shaped into crescents. Made with butter, they are similar to the Austro-Hungarian nut horns.

 

BON APPÉTIT
