    I used the full instructions and recipe but the dough was dry and crumbly, how can I fix it? Also, yes, I agree it's not Moroccan, it's a French cookie but many Middle Eastern cultures make these cookies.

    In 1967 my US Navy ship, a combat supply ship, was the only American war ship allowed to have liberty in Tangiers as well as France. We had a big reputation all over the Mediterranean of being fierce fighters and perfect gentlemen on liberty. We were the first US Navy ship allowed there since WWII. We really loved the place and people. I enjoyed these cookies so much that I asked our chief cook if he would order some for crew dinners. We often bought speciality food from ports we went to for crew morale, you should have seen all the trucks loading breads and pastry in French ports. We were a very privileged crew back then. The cook did order the cookies, a lot of them and they were all gone at the first dinner. The cook refused to order any more because he said he would have to order a dozen trucks for just a month's supply, I think he was being optimistic. I bought six dozen and hid them in my locker. They only lasted two days, when a shipmate saw them, our crew turned into pirates and I lost my treasure. Finding your video I can now make them myself.
    I have so many great memories from Morocco, that's where I learned to haggle with sellers in the market,. It was more fun haggling than the items I bought. It was a much better time when Americans and Muslims had great respect and affection for each other.

    you are so talented
    you speak French and English just like a native
    and arabic as well
    it's kind of off topic but
    can you share your experience with languages too?
    I'm from iran and I love recipes from all around the world not only because I am a total foodie kitchen lover but also because of passion for languages
    you are such an interesting person for me, in that sense
    I admire you

    Ok, I just whipped up a quick batch of these. They were great! I like the idea that they're not too sweet, since you will be putting jam in the middles. Make sure they're rolled out thinly, my first batch was a bit too thick. The cloves give them a different flavor, and you can only detect a hint of it. I would suggest to leave the ground cloves in. Thanks for posting!

  • denverjim1955
