A delectable Arabic dessert made from rolls of soft, sweet cheese dough that gets stuffed with clotted cream, and crowned with pistachios and rose petal jam. A drizzle of syrup flavored with orange blossom and rose water puts the final seal of perfection.
It’s no wonder why the minute Ramadan ends, most can’t even look at a Middle Eastern dessert for at least another month. But that’s in Egypt, and probably neighboring countries. It’s a tradition. Culture. And it’s been the same ol’ every Ramadan for as long as I could remember and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
The dough is slightly chewy and pleasantly cheesy. The filling, on the other hand, is beyond creamy and perfectly rich. When you bite into it, it oozes out, and things that ooze out tend to be my favorite. The pistachios add crunch and the syrup just ties everything together.
