I can’t seem to stop myself from making Kanafeh at least once a month, and when you try it, you will know why.
Kanafeh or (knaffeh) is a very popular dessert throughout the Arab world! It’s sweet, cheesy, and easy to prepare, of course at the same time it’s very delicious.
There are different kinds of Kanafeh (rough, fine, and mixed) and every one has a favorite. I will be posting the rough one today.
It became my potluck dish to almost every party I go to.
1 package of shredded Filo dough (another name Kataifi)
1 pound of sweet cheese
1 pound of mozzarella cheese
1cup soften sweet butter
1/ 2 cup chopped pistachios
2 cups sugar
1 cup water
1tbs. Mazaher (orange blossom water)
Mix sugar and water, boil until slightly thickened, add orange blossom water
Let it cool down.

Just make sure you shred the dough and mix well with butter.
Bake in a preheated oven until golden brown.
Serve Kanafeh while WARM, add syrup to your taste.
Add the soft butter, mix and shred until it becomes Light and fluffy!
