Kunafa Recipe - Kunafa Bil-Jibn Recipe

An easy recipe to prepare best kunafa desserts. Kunafa originated in the Palestinian city of Nablus then spread to Arab and middle eastern countries. Kunafa is a traditional Middle Eastern desert made from white melted cheese and shreded wheat. It is delicious and light!

1 package of shredded fillo dough
1/2 pound of butter melted
2 lbs ricotta cheese
1/2 cup pine nuts
1/2 cup minced pistachio
3 cups sugar
1 tsp lemon juice

  1. First step is to defrost the Fillo dough. Do this by shredding the fillo in a bowl continuously till completelly defrosted.
  2. Once this occurs, you start adding the butter while continuously shredding the dough. When this process is complete and the dough is shredded thoroughly, seperate the dough into two equal portions.
  3. In a well buttered pan, spread out the dough thoroughly, but do not compress. Once the dough is spread evenly, start preparing the ricotta cheese. Lay the cheese patties onto the prepared dough in the pan. Once the layer of ricotta cheese is completely covering the dough, lay the second half of the dough unto the cheese so that it is evenly distrubuted.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, then place the pan in the middle for approxiametly 45 minutes. What you need to look for, is that the dough browns. Once achieved, you will need a larger pan in which you will flip the Knefeh so the the bottom is on top and vice versa. Bake again till the browning occurs on the adjacent side. Once browned on both sides, the Knafe is finished.
  5. The last step is to top the Knefeh with the sweet syrup, pine nuts, and pistachio.
