• 250g almonds
  • 250g sugar
  • 240g plain flour
  • 2 egg whites
  • Some blossom water
  • Some water
  • grated rind of orange
  • Some cloves


1. Toast or roast the almonds for a while and make sure that they do not get burnt because the taste will become sour. Once it turns golden...

2. Leave it to cool down and then crush them well.

3. In a bowl sieve the flour. Add the almonds, grated rind of orange, sugar, blossom water and the egg whites.

4. Mix all the ingredients until the mixture becomes like dough. If need be add more water so that it solidifies. You have to be careful when you add the water so that it doesnt become too soft and neither too solid.

5. Knead well.

6. Water your hands and take pieces of this mixture and roll them in balls. Flatten each piece and elongate and fatten it so that its form is like a sausage.

7. Cover a dish with a baking sheet and put the kwarezimal on top.

8. Before putting them in the oven, set them aside for a few minutes. Then with a knife put lines on top of each piece to form a pattern.

9. Heat at a medium temperature for 20 to 25 minutes.

10. Check that they don't over bake. Some people tend to take out the kwarezimal when it is too solid. This is wrong as it should be taken out when it is still soft in order so that later on it can be eaten.
