Tea and cookies is the ultimate Egyptian comfort food-snack. In this instance, mom felt bad for me and and my 4-hours-of-sleep-a-night and brought me a cup of tea with milk and some old-school cookies. When I say these cookies are old-school, I really mean it. They're not dipped in jam or sugar or shaped nicely or dyed. They are nutritious and delicious :).
Above are the cookies. There are two folded cookies stuffed with mashed date, a powdery walnut cookie, and a piece of aniseed biscotti.
It may have been the caffeine, but I did feel better afterwards :))
