This recipe is our first challenge of Walima club, which I am a part of (if you want to join us to
the club, you are welcome). It is an Algerian recipe, it has been proposed by our friend Khadidja, she took us to Algeria to make us discover this beautiful country which is a part of the Maghreb, its capital is Algier, situated in the North, on the Mediterranean Coast, it is the biggest country bordering the Mediterranean Sea and the second largest country in Africa after Sudan.
Khadidja gave us two choices, one is "Tagine with olives ", the second one is "Almond surprise", it's also called " Basket of the bride " because it's usually prepared on the occasion of a marriage. It's based on almond and water of orange blossom.
I choose the dessert because I have made a lot of "Tagine recipes" before.
I wanted to change the recipe a little by adding my personal touch, I used the same dough to prepare Moroccan slippers and roses, these shapes already exist in the Moroccan bakery, the dough looks a little bit like the dough of the " Algerian basket ". The result was excellent and the taste is the same, what's really different is the forms of the biscuits. /
