Knafeh... This is arguably the most famous Middle Eastern dessert. This is the Middle East's version of our "apple pie", metaphorically speaking. Typically, this dessert is a sweet cheese topped with one of two types of crust-like topping. I prefer the crumbled topping, personally. Then it is topped with pistachios and smothered in a sweet sugar syrup. It is the perfect end to any Middle Eastern meal and served at every major celebration. Absolutely incredible!
