It is celebrated all around the world, where people families visit, kids are given money, and Eid sweets are served to well-wishers and relatives. And like each year this post is about the sweets I prepared for Eid.

From top:
Knafeh Bel-Fustuq: A square of two decadent layers of roasted knafeh with a sweet chopped pistachio filling.

Warbat Snoubar: Sweetened fine filo pastry stuffed with crushed pine nuts.

‘Esh Al-Bulbul Bel-Fustuq (Bird’s nest): Premium pistachio nuts are set within a roasted knafeh nest. Bite sized and crunchy, one is simply not enough.

Asabe’e Kajo (Cashwe Finger): Chopped & sweetened cashew nuts rolled into light filo pasty dough. Baked to perfection and smothered with sugar syrup.

Knafeh Ballouriyeh: A square of two decadent layers of knafeh with a sweet chopped pistachio filling. The name “Ballouriyeh” came from the Arabic word “Ballour” which is in English “Glass”, so the color of Knafeh should not change during baking.
