Cornes de gazelle, or gazelle horns, are a popular pastry throughout North Africa in Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco. They're also called Tcherek, Tcharek, or Kaab el Ghazal. These gazelle horns boast an almond filling and soaking of honey flavoured with orange blossom water. A unique and decadent treat!
The filling in this recipe has less sugar than usual, because the honey sweetens them further. If you decide to omit the honey, you can add 200g or 220g of sugar to the filling.
