Egipcios are Moroccan cookies that are basically shortbread cookies stuffed with a date mixture. Egipcios (Egypians) are cookies my Mama would make and serve every Shabbat lunch. I loved them, along with the peanut butter cookies and chocolate buns should would make.
One of my dads cousins passed on the family recipe to me so I can try to make them gluten free. Well, lied, I didn't try to make it gluten free, my wonderful mother'n'law tried to make them gluten free. Actually, she succeeded making them gluten free.
I posted this recipe on my brothers Haggis and Herring blog a while back and I just wanted to share it with everyone. Check out the "Egipcios - Moroccan Shortbread Cookie with Dates" on the Haggis and Herring blog. This recipe works with a straight up substitute of Kinnikinnick all purpose gluten free flour when it asks for flour. Also make sure the baking powder you use gluten free.
