    chef FIFI's Note:

    This recipe can also be reffered to as Kishtah Bil Aasil, which means cream in honey. My husband loves this dessert and is enjoyed in the Palestinian/Jordanian region and perhaps in other parts of the Middle East. *Cooking time does not include cooling time*. I used to use "kanafah coloring" bought at any middle eastern grocers to color the aasil, but food color works the same.

      This dessert is very easy to make - it is only for those who have a sweet tooth, though ! I found it way to sweet for my taste, but the kids liked it.
