Kahk pronounced as kh-ak are Egyptian festive cookies. They are also eid cookies which are served on festivals like eid. Kahk in Arabic means cookies. These cookies are either filled with the traditional agameya which is a hoNey filling or dates and walnuts or just plain and dusted with icing sugar. This cookies are bookmarked from Amiras pantry. Since I do not have the traditonal kahk mold, I have used a fork to make the impression on the cookies
