About Briouattes

Briouattes are made from a sweet, thin pastry known as Brik, which is similar to filo pastry but is slightly easier to work with. The recipe here is suitable for vegetarians however Briouattes in Morocco are commonly prepared with a variety of meat fillings, traditionally lamb or chicken.
