Kaak (Lebanese Biscuit with Sesame Seeds)

This edition’s recipe is the savoury and delicious Mehshee Sleeh, a very popular Lebanese meal that can be adapted to stuff most vegetables. This recipe has been very kindly provided by our very own Madam Secretary Mrs Petra Fakhry. Sahtein!Kaak is an all-time favourite biscuit in most (if not all) Lebanese families and households. For many, a cup of ahqui tastes even better with kaak on the side. This fabulous recipe is by Elaine Riachi handed down to her daughter, Samia, and to all her friends and neighbours. It has also appeared in the Sahtain Recipe Book.
