Clover Shaped Sweets with Almonds     

                                                    -- Arayaches -- 




Another classic Algerian Almond cake. Arayechs or Clovers with almonds that  you can decorate  any way you like, with silver beads, small flowers of different colours, different designs, etc., for me I  prefer them classic and easy.



3 cups of flour
1 cup melted ghee
3 tbsp sugar
orange flower water + water

2 cups almonds
1 cup sugar
1/2  tsp cinnamon
Orange flower water

Icing: Recipe here


In a bowl, sift flour, add salt and sugar. Make a fountain pour the melted ghee.


Pour the water mixture gently until the dough is smooth and soft.

Prepare the stuffing: Mix the almonds with sugar, cinnamon and add some orange blossom water until the mixture becomes soft and smooth.

Roll up the dough, cut circles, put the stuffing in the middle T-shaped, Bring the edges toward the centre and work the dough so as to have a clover.

Bake in preheated oven until lightly browned. Cool.

Prepare the frosting

Dip the cakes in the icing. decorate. Let to dry.
