It is a little trip to the Maghreb that I propose to you today with this recipe of cigars with almonds. Leah and F. are parties in Morocco there is not so long ago and it was after their return that I have been wanting to make these oriental pastries. Yes, because on this day the Mister and I were invited to dine with them and he had to stay in the theme to accompany the tagine chicken-Leah ! It is, therefore, on a sweet note (but not too much) and the good taste of pink that we have finished the meal. Everyone loved it, even if we were no longer very hungry, it is true that these cigars with almonds are very addictive !!!
Pamper yourself and make yourself a small indulgence !!!
