Sliced oranges get simple yet sophisticated treatment with a generous sprinkling of ground cinnamon, sugar and orange flower water. Serve this classic Moroccan dessert as a perfect ending to family meals and company dinners.
Some Moroccans use powdered sugar instead of granulated, but I prefer the contrasting texture and crunch of the granulated sugar.
A sprig of mint leaves can be added as a garnish if desired.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
- For each person:
- 1 or 2 navel oranges
- 1 teaspoon orange flower water
- granulated sugar (or powdered sugar)
- ground cinnamon
Peel the oranges and removed the pith. Slice the oranges into rings, about 1/4 inch thick.
Arrange the orange slices on a plate – make a pattern if you like – and drizzle with the orange flower water. Generously sprinkle the slices with sugar and cinnamon, and serve immediately.
If serving children, you might prefer to halve the oranges lengthwise before slicing.
If prepping the oranges in advance, wait to add the sugar and cinnamon until serving time.
