Saudi Tea Cakes

I love this easy to make dessert and its a great idea for serving to guest. If qashta is not avaliable where you live you can substitute chocolate mouse or even pudding. Any sweet chocolate mix will work in place of the Nestles as well, make sure it is sweet however. My little one helped make this one as well, hes on a roll. I think we were eating more then we were making though :).

32 (1-1/2 packs) tea biscuits
2 (175 gram) cans qashta
8 tablespoons Nestle chocolate mix
1/4 cup shredded coconut

1. In a large bowl add qashta and chocolate powder, mix well. Place a 8x8 inch pan down. Take a tea biscuit and with a butter knife carefully spread chocolate qashta atop, continue doing this making each stack each have 4 tea biscuits. Place each stack into pan. Pour remaining qashta mix on top and spread evenly. Sprinkle coconut on top.

2. Cover top and allow to sit in refrigerator overnight. Next day carefully cut small slices (about 2x1 inch). Serve with tea.

    wao delicious recipes

  7. Salam alaikum wa ramatulah wa barakatu sister Noor, this is UmmBinat. I made these for my FIL's dewaniya along with some traditional Arab sweets with phyllo and a white cake. They were eaten all up so I guess they are good and not overly sweet. I used a different hot chocolate powder as it was the first one I found, the cheapest tea biscuits but I know they are eaten in that household anyway, the shredded coconut was soft and sweetened type, plus the keshta. I used about 1 1/2 times the recipe for a 9 X 13 inch pan. I may try this again and have DH let me know how tasty it is. jazak Allah kheiren for this easy recipe.
