K is for Kahk
Kahk (or ka7k as it is also written to reflect the more accurate pronunciation of كحك for those familiar with Arabic) is a cookie traditionally prepared for eid celebrations, which began here in Egypt yesterday.
Kahk is a heavy, sweet pastry made of flour, dairy/vegetable ghee (or butter or vegetable oil), eggs, milk and loads of sugar. Traditional Egyptian kahk is a plain disc-shaped tartlet covered with powdered sugar, but there are also other types of kahk stuffed with a number of different saccharine fillings.
