Sweet energy food

Al Moroccan families are preparing sweet food for Ramadan breakfast.
Sweet food are important in fasting month, like almond briwattes with honey that give us energy.


1 kg of almonds.
1/2 kg of sugar granulated.
1 tsp cinnamon.
1 kg brike of pastilla.
1/2 glass orange flower water.
1 l of oil.
2 kg of honey.
4 grains of gum arabic.

mix almonds, sugar and orange flower carefully with 10 oz softened butter.
place a slightly flattened knob of almond paste on the edge of each of pastilla, and the two sides in over it to make a rectangle about 2 inches wide. rull up the pastilla tightly and stick the end with egg yolk.
Bring it to boiling point three times, keep the honey on a very low heat near the frying pan, in which you should now brown the briwattes in boiling oil.
take the briwattes out of the oil and drop them into the honey, where they must stay for a few minutes, take them out of the honey and drain them for a few seconds then arrange them on a tagine.
