Above: Knafeh Ballouriyeh, it is prepared from Knafeh (it is sometimes known as shredded phyllo) and Pistachio filling.

Here is a brief description about it and I’ll post the recipe in details and step by step instructions:
Prepare knafeh by mixing it with melted ghee and divide knafeh into two equal parts.
Place knafeh on the bottom of the baking dish and press strongly
.
Add the filling which is chopped pistachio mixed with sugar syrup and orange blossom water and press strongly.
Lay the other part of knafeh over the filling and press strongly.

Add a weight over the knafeh to press it well, and set aside for 5 hours at room temperature.
After 5 hours, bake it in the oven and you should keep the weight over the knafeh while baking it, make sure that the
Knafeh color doesn’t change, the color should remain white, then remove it from oven and pour cold sugar syrup flavored with orange blossom water.
Let it cool completely, then cut it.

The name “Ballouriyeh” came from the Arabic word “Ballour” which is in English “Glass”, so the color of Knafeh is like the color of glass (Ballour) and should not change during baking.

Most people don’t make “Knafeh Ballouriyeh” at home, but they purchase it from sweet shops.

I’ll post the recipe soon.

Above: Knafeh Bel-Jouz, it is prepared from Knafeh and walnuts filling.

Knafeh Bel-Jouz is a specialty of Hama, Syria –  and most people prepare it a home. Sweet shops don’t make knafeh filled with walnuts (my grandmother told me that in the past the knafeh filled with walnuts was very popular and available in the markets, but these days they replaced the walnuts with pistachios and you can’t find it with walnuts).

Here is a brief description about it and I’ll post the recipe in details and step by step instructions:
Prepare knafeh by mixing it with melted ghee and divide knafeh into two equal parts.
Place knafeh on the bottom of the baking dish and press strongly
.
Add the filling which is chopped walnuts mixed with sugar syrup and press strongly.
Lay the other part of knafeh over the filling and press strongly.

Add a weight over the knafeh to press it well, and set aside t for 2 hours at room temperature.
After 2 hours, bake it in the oven and you should keep the weight over the knafeh while baking it, bake until golden brown in color
, then remove it from oven and pour plain cold sugar syrup.
Let it cool completely, then cut it.

I’ll post the recipe soon.

Above: Bousou La Tmssou.

Bousou La Tmssou (Algerian cookies), the dough is almost similar to Ma’amoul Abiad, but the cookies are dipped in orange blossom water after baking them, then dusted with powdered sugar, the cookies are delicate and that’s why they are called Bousou La Tmssou which means “kiss but don’t touch”.

I’ll post the recipe soon. Read the recipe: Bousou La Tmssou
