Kahk Spices

‘Kahk’ literally translates to cookies. After the fasting month of Ramadan we celebrate ‘Eid’ in my home country Egypt and the most of the Arab world with making all sorts of cookies but the most special one dating to the Pharaos is actually kahk.

It's a very soft, buttery melt in your mouth kind of cookie that is sprinkled with sugar and spiced with this special blend of spices.

For me Eid starts with the trip along with my mum to the downtown and one of those old spice shops to prepare our kahk spices, and yes as a kid I was excited with this trip 😃 I loved how the old man concocted those spices and the aromas that filled the shop❤️❤️

It's a very warm and fragrant mix, flowery because of the rose petals. I have a huge jar of it and I use not just for kahk but cakes, cookies, coffee...... Etc the sky is the limit 😍
