I baked some cookies a few nights ago to give to some friends. I decided on Chocolate Chip and Cinnamon cookies. I wanted to make Ginger Snaps but my ambooba ran out. (Cooking gas)
One of the things I love about Egyptian culture is the friendliness of neighbors. Two friends/neighbors and I in my building often send each other plates of food and sweets via our children. We always return the plate with something of our own in return. It's really cute. I'm always introducing them to new American things like these cookies or rice crispy treats and brownies. They've sent me Egyptian favorites like stuffed vegetables and cosharee. It's a lovely little tradition.
