M'hanncha (The Snake) is a lovely dessert that can be served hot or cold. It is a traditional Moroccan dish.

Ingredients Needed For M'hanncha
* 150g chopped almonds
* 75g granulated sugar
* 1 tablespoon butter, melted
* 2 teaspoons orange flower water
* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 8 sheets filo pastry
* butter
* Ground cinnamon
* icing sugar

Directions To Prepare M'hanncha
Put the Sugar, butter, orange flower water, almonds and cinnamon in a blender until the mixture is smooth.

Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions and place each lengthways down the side of one piece of filo pastry. Roll the pastry around the mixture. The finished thing should resemble a Sausage shape.

Coil it into a kind of snail's shell then set aside and cover with a damp tea towel. Repeat this with all 8 pieces.

Heat the butter in a large pan and then fry the pastries until they are browned on both sides.

Sprinkle the pastries with cinnamon and icing sugar and serve. They can be left to cool if you wish to eat them cold.
