Briouats are small Moroccan pastries which are stuffed with a variety of fillings and then fried. They're a very popular offering on Moroccan iftar tables, and many families stock their freezers with several varieties prior to the start of Ramadan.
Although some briouats can be time-consuming to make, Cheese Briouats with a simple cream cheese filling are quick and easy in comparison. Minced chili peppers, herbs and spices can be added to the filling for variety.
