If there’s one dessert that rules as the Queen of Arabic sweets, I would nominate Kunafe Nablusia, the sticky pastry made of gooey sweet cheese sandwiched between layers of shredded kunafe pastry. This specialty from the Palestinian city of Nablus is prep
Halawet el Jibn (sweet cheese rolls) An 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 flavoured with orange blossom and rose water.
Atayef – stuffed syrian pancakes filled with ricotta cheese, deep-fried, dipped in chopped pistachio nuts, and topped with shira (Fragrant Aleppian Dessert Syrup) You're killin me! Never had Syrian food!
Baklava, a sinfully delicious delight that will definitely satisfy the sweet tooth. I usually stop at the local gourmet baklava store in Dubai Mall to indulge on these wonderful treats, calories & all !
Had this in Palestine! Sahlab: 1 tablespoons Sahlab powder or 2 tablespoons cornstarch 4 cups milk 3 tablespoons sugar, or to taste 2 teaspoons rose or orange-blossom water (optional) 2 tablespoons finely chopped pistachios Ground cinnamon
