Msemen are flat, square-shaped Moroccan pancakes usually served for breakfast or tea time. They're made by flattening rghaif dough on an oiled surface until paper-thin, dotting it with butter and semolina, then folding it into thirds (twice) to shape a layered pancake. 

You can make the msemen ahead of time and keep them in the freezer until needed. Measures for butter and oil are approximate quantities. Be prepared to use more or less for folding the msemen.
