Directions

How to Make Gazelle With Sesame Seeds Recipe

STEP 01

Start by mixing the blanched almonds and sugar using a blender.

STEP 02

Once the almond mixture has a coarse powdery texture, now add the orange blossom water, butter, cinnamon, and mastic gum, and mix well until you get a smooth almond paste out of it.

STEP 03

Shape the almond paste into rolls that are 3 inches long and 1/2 inch wide, dip each almond paste roll in egg whites, and coat it with sesame seeds.

STEP 04

Place the rolls on a baking pan on parchment paper and shape them into a crescent.

STEP 05

Preheat your oven to 360 f degrees. Bake the cookies for 10-15 minutes.

STEP 06

Note when the cookies are still hot they are soft, but as they cool down, they will become chewy. Do not overbake the cookies. Let the cookies cool down and serving with mint tea!
