 Tcharak or Tcherek  with honey    تشاراك معسل



With the approach of Eid el-Adha, Eid el Kbir, I share again with you today this cake tcharak or gazelle's hornes or almond's croissant with honey.  I have made it twice, once with margarine and the second with butter as many visitors ask me the question what if I put the margarine instead of butter??, well I tried it  for you and the result is delicious in both cases and as I have made it  for the first time I have played a bit with the dough and I tried different shapes.. lol
