'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[1] [2] 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.
