Briouats (or el briwate) are typical Moroccan pastries served during the month of Ramadan. They are similar to almond cigars and baklava, delicate and delicious, but very high in calories. Briouats are made of brik filo pastry, a filling flavoured with cinnamon, orange blossom water and gum arabic (mesca el houra), and are deep-fried in oil. Alternatively, they can be lightly buttered and baked.
You can use regular filo pastry if brik is unavailable. You can omit the gum arabic if it's hard to find.
