A ghoriba (Arabic: غريبة, also spelled ghribia, ghraïba, or ghriyyaba) is a type of cookie prepared in the Maghreb and Egypt. It is a round, shortbread cookie made with flour, sugar, butter, and usually almonds. It is often served with Libyan tea, Arabic coffee or Maghrebi mint tea. Ghoriba sometimes pronounce as Ghurayba, has been around in the Greater Syria area, Iraq and other Arab countries since ancient times. They are similar to polvorones from Andalusia and qurabiya from Iran.
'Gazelle ankles (transliterated from Arabic: كعب الغزال kaʕbu lɣazaːl, also known in French as cornes de gazelle, "gazelle horns") are a traditional dessert of Morocco in the form of crescent-shaped cookies made of flour-based dough filled with almond paste aromatized with orange blossom water. Gazelle ankles are relatively pricey due to the presence of almonds, and are therefore served as a delicacy at special events, often with tea.
