If the dough is "shredded" in knafi, how does the cheese stay in? How are they cooked?

    For those of you who don't like peeps, try lighting them on fire (or toasting them to your liking) and eating them that way. The sugar crystalizes and the marshmallow gets properly gooey (i.e. edible). Somewhat macabre, but tasty nonetheless.

      Lisa....knafi is made with shredded phyllo. The base is similar in texture to an oatmeal bar cookie.fairly dense and packed and held together with butter, honey, spices, orange blossom water and cream of wheat(sometimes add a bit of brown sugar if it seems too runny) For the cheese filling you can either use a slightly sweetened ricotta or else a sweetened marscapone. Over the top you make a layer of the shredded phyllo then drizzle the honey/butter/spice solution over it....if orangeblossom water is not availiable, a bit of lemon juice doesn't hurt. I usually sprinkle some chopped nuts over too, before baking. I actually prefer this pastry slightly over baklava.

        red, as everyone here knows, I'm not big on sweets but that sounds positively yummy. Could you post a more detailed recipe?? Puhleese??

          I think this may turn into the other Easter. This all sounds good to me. More on the bourbon ham, redtressed. Please? And not a peep from me otherwise.
