Eswaret As-Set is kind of baklava known in other countries as “Barma” or “Ush Al-Ghorab”.  The name “Eswaret As-Set” means “Lady’s Bracelet ” or “Lady’s Wristlet”. It is prepared from phyllo dough that is formed to round shape, then melted ghee is added to each piece and baked in the oven. After baking, sugar syrup flavored with orange blossom water is added and the center is filled with crushed pistachios. I made the phyllo dough.
