Description

Knafeh is a dessert popular all throughout the middle east and a delicious and rich treat, made with unripened cheese that’s baked in shredded phyllo dough before being soaked in simple syrup.

The pastry is heated in butter, margarine, palm oil, or traditionally semneh and then spread with soft white cheese, such as Nabulsi cheese, and topped with more pastry. In khishnah kanafeh the cheese is rolled in the pastry. A thick syrup of sugar, water, and a few drops of rose water is poured on the pastry during the final minutes of cooking. Often the top layer of pastry is tinted with red food coloring (a modern shortcut, instead of baking it for long periods of time). Crushed pistachios are sprinkled on top as a garnish.

The pieces in the bag are frozen
Each bag has one slice in it. The minimum order is 5 bags.
