Our endless love for the sweet, buttery cookie has stood its ground since ancient Egypt. Considering how soft and delicious they are, it’s no wonder Kahk has become a staple since then. Whether they’re stuffed with dates, agameya, nuts or malban, plain or sprinkled with a lavish dusting of powdered sugar, Kahk is loved by all – especially during Eid Al-fitr festivities.
As we reminisce through our childhood years, one would argue that for many Egyptians, their favourite memories would have to include helping out their grandmother on the last day of Ramadan, as she bakes and they stamp the Eid Al-fitr Kahk. But, it’s become easier to buy them during times like these than go through the whole baking process – especially when all we want is to sit back and relax. So, here are a few places you can find delicious Kahk this season:
