Knafeh Recipe, for the Most Fabulous Middle-Eastern Dessert
by Miriam Kresh for GreenProphet
Does a vision of rich, creamy, sweet and cheesy dessert with a crunchy topping totally seduce you? Well, it seduces people with a sweet tooth everywhere in the Levant. In Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Egypt, Greece and Turkey, good housewives make knafeh, the most luxurious dairy dessert. (You might also find it spelled knafe, kunafeh, knafah, konafah, konafeh – it’s all the same stuff!).
We love traditional recipes like knafeh, the beautiful Iraqi watermelon rind jam and goat’s cheese with dates.
