This sweet Moroccan pastry takes its name from a traditional presentation of coiling pastry-wrapped almond paste into a snake-like shape. M'hancha can be made quite large for serving at social gatherings, guests enjoy the pastry by breaking off small portions from the outermost part of the coil.
Alternatively, m'hancha may be shaped into small, individual-sized coils, or simply prepared as small stick-like lengths of wrapped almond paste. Here, however, the method is for making a large pastry such as that shown.
