My second job is in a library. While I'm there I almost always come across a new and interesting food book - or an old favourite that I haven't seen in a while. This week my find was "Ärabesque - Modern Middle Eastern Food" by Greg and Lucy Malouf. I look forward to really exploring it, but so far have only flicked through it and was instantly drawn to Pine Nut Wafers. I tried them this evening. They were straightforward to make, and just as tasty and luscious as I'd hoped. They'd be great with pre-dinner drinks.
|I love the colour of fennel seeds!|

1 tspn fennel seeds, roasted and lightly crushed

Carefully spoon rounds of the mixture onto the tray. I used egg-rings as a mould, but removed them before baking.)

Remove from oven and allow them to cool completely on the tray.
