Hello everyone,

Here is the recipe for arayeches, Algerian cakes well known for their presence in the most beautiful tables of Eid, weddings, engagements, circumcisions and birth celebrations.

These pretty Arayeches, beautifully filled and well presented, are the creation of my friend Mina Minnano, who liked to share with us her wonders, and her recipe for arayeches, which is still different from my recipe for larayeche, or even the arayeche from Lunetoiles .

If you want, you can also see arayeches with honey, and arayeches with coconut, or even arayeches with pistachio.
