These Moroccan almond cookies take their name from their crescent shape. In Arabic they're called Kaab el Ghazal or "gazelle ankles," while in English they're called Gazelle Horns, after the French name Cornes de Gazelles. They're prepared by enclosing almond paste in pastry dough, molding the cookies into the classic shape, and then baking.
The following pages will show how to prepare the cookies. For a printable version without step-by-step photos, see the Kaab el Ghazal Recipe.
