Editors Review

Arabic sweets is a world of exotic mouth watering delicacies and qatayef is one of those tempting desserts. Very simple yet full of nectarous flavors. Take a look at the detailed recipe in the video.

Dina, you may make the dough, fill it with cheese or nuts or anything you like then freeze it. when you are ready to eat it, just take it out of the freezer, let it though for 15 minutes, its just like bread, and bake it or fry it and then drench it with sugar syrup. Ramadan Kareem to you and your family.
