Very tasty! I am FINALLY over my fear of phyllo pastry. LOL I used 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, everything else I kept as directed. Thanks for sharing SydneyMike. Made for ZWT 6.

Good! DH says. This was eaten in my FIL's diwaniya (men's social gathering) with Arabic coffee and black tea. I used homogenised milk because I couldn't find whole milk, alcohol free vanilla from the health food store, semolina by CLIC brand which is not durum semolina but the type used to make bosbousa (Arabic cake). I did 1 1/2 batches for a 9 X 13 inch pan to have a bigger quantity. That way I cut the phyllo pastry sheets in half for each layer. I definitely went easier on the cinnamon than using 2 tbs. I think I used less than 1/4 tsp for the 1 1/2 batches. I may make this again. I wonder if I could change up the vanilla for rose water or orange blossom water and the spice for maybe cardamom??
