Knafeh (Arabic: كنافة) is a traditional Middle Eastern dessert made with spun pastry called kataifi, soaked in sweet, sugar-based syrup, and typically layered with cheese, or with other ingredients such as clotted cream, pistachio or nuts, depending on the region. It is popular in the Arab world, particularly Egypt and the Levant, being considered the most representative and iconic Palestinian dessert. Variants are also found in Turkey, Greece, and the Balkans.
