Moroccan Desserts

For round 2 of the Project Food Blog competition, Natalie was challenged to create a classic dish from a foreign cuisine. She let Morocco inspire her, and then she seriously outdid herself with these three incredible Moroccan desserts: Pears and Figs in Honey Syrup, Sfenj (doughnut lovers, this is for you), and a Moroccan Serpent Cake (M'Hanncha), made with filo pastry, almonds and rose water.

Natalie: as someone who has had the honor of posting your baked goods before, the Baking is Hot community wishes you the best of luck! Your desserts look so gorgeous (and delicious)!!

Fig Brie & Prosciutto Tarts

Fig Brie & Prosciutto Tarts

I absolutely LOVE figs - especially fresh ripe seasonal figs - yum! Maybe it's their subtle sweet flavor, or their high mineral content - whatever it is I know I can eat a ridiculous amount in one sitting.

La Fuji Mama spends a week experimenting with different kinds of fresh California figs, and comes up with these quick, easy, and impressive little tarts. She says: "Figs and cheese make a divine combination, and then if you add a bit of pork to the mix, whether it be bacon, pancetta, or prosciutto, you get the gold medal trio of savory fig combinations." I'm in!
