KAAK B'HALIB
(milk cakes)
Prepared for Easter

Ingredients:
500g flour
100g butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup of milk
200g sugar
1 teaspoon yeast
1 teaspoon powdered aromatic plants: wild cherry seed, marjoram, aniseed.

Mix the flour, yeast, aromatic plants and gradually add the olive oil and melted butter. Dilute the sugar in the milk and add to the mixture. Knead the dough and allow to rest for 2 hours. Shape flat cakes about 7 cm in diameter and 1 cm thick (wooden molds exist to imprint a motif on the dough). They can also be stretched in the shapes of bracelets thick as a finger. Bake in medium oven after preheating it at a high temperature. They are eaten lukewarm or cold.

Tips
Once the kaaks are baked, you can dilute 2 tablespoons of sugar in half a cup of milk and dip the top face of the cakes in it, then sprinkle them with sugar. Allow to dry a bit before serving.

Note: Too lazy right now to convert metric to English. :P I'll do it later.
