A new knefeh: when Lebanon meets Canada for dessert

Knefeh is a delicious Lebanese dessert typically done with two layers of bread crumb dough with cheese in between. 

Alternatively, a shredded dough called kataifi is used and some folks call the final dish ‘Ismanliyeh’. 

I changed it a a little…

I thawed the kataifi for an hour at room temperature. Took a strand, fluffed it and created a nest in a cupcake pan.

Bake for 12-15min till brown at 375F

Add about a teaspoon of store bought ricotta on top and pour about 1-2 tablespoons of maple syrup…

Turned out so yum!
