This is absolutely yummy. You must try it. This recipe goes way back. I have changed one ingredient and thats the vanilla essence. Lebanese tradition requires you to add rosewater instead. Give it a go and see which you prefer.

i dont understand how you can get 12-15 servings when i got 6 small servings... vanilla essence idea was really good.
