I once took some colleagues from work to a Mediterranean restaurant to experience kosher food. We were comparing notes on food and culture when she shared with me that if I never had “Künefe” (here’s how to pronounce it); it means I never tasted the best dessert ever created. She emailed me the recipe, and after many days of her reminding me that I need to try it, I decided to make it.
I have already made it twice–once without the pistachio topping for friends that are nut-allergic, and once with it. It is incredible both ways. The best way to describe the taste is sweet, buttery croissant. The shredded mozzarella used in this dessert plays a pivotal role in providing a soft, creamy richness that is unparalleled. One bite is never enough!
Here is the recipe–let me know what you think!
