Today, I share with you a delicious almond Fekkas recipe, Also called crunchy almonds, it's delicious small biscuits perfectly accompany with a cup of coffee or a glass of tea.


3 eggs

150g caster sugar

125g whole almonds

125g of melted butter

70g of grilled sesame

50ml of orange blossom water

20ml of neutral oil

1 tbsp grilled anise

1 tsp vanilla extract (or a vanilla sugar packet)

1 sachet of baking powder

a pinch of salt

500g of flour



1 egg yolk

1 tablespoon of soluble coffee ( you can use cacao powder )


1 - Dece the almonds in the water of orange blossom and let take all the night

2 - The next day, drain the almonds, cut in 2 or 3 with a knife, and reserve the water of orange blossom

3 - In a bowl, mix the eggs with the sugar and vanilla, add the melted butter, the oil, the sesame, and the roasted anise, the almonds, the pinch of salt then finish with the flour and yeast (perso I added in addition to 500g of flour the equivalent of 2 tablespoons more to no longer have the sticky dough)

4 - Once all the ingredients are mixed, we obtain a soft and homogeneous paste

5 - Divide the dough into four balls and form rolls of dough

6 - Brush the pudding with the beaten egg and soluble coffee mixture, scratch with a fork

7 - Bake for first baking in a non-preheated oven at  340 f  180 °c  for 10min (next time I will extend this step to 15min to facilitate cutting later)

after a first  baking

8 - At the end of the oven, gently brush the sausages of fekkas with the rest of the orange blossom water, cover with a clean cloth and let rest about 3h

 9 - Cut gently with a sharp knife the fekkas (this is the stage that took me the most time, it must be applied to avoid crumbling the fekkas)
