Greek Halva With Almonds

This is a traditional greek dessert, but unlike most of the recipes on this site, uses butter instead of oil. I like to heat a bit up and pour milk over it and have it for breakfast. Please note that cooking time doesn't include time for cooling (since technically it's good hot too).

directions

  • In a pot, mix water, sugar and cinnamon stick and bring to a boil. Remove cinnamon stick.
  • Meanwhile, in a large pot over medium heat, melt butter and then add the cream of wheat and the almonds. Keep stirring until the semolina turns a golden brown, being careful it doesn't burn.
  • CAREFULLY pour liquid into the semolina. It will bubble voilently. Mix it thoroughly and then pour the mixture into a mold. Let cool and then remove from mold.
