  • About

This unique pie is easy to prepare and makes quite an impression. The crisp texture of the oven-baked kataifi sweetened with syrup complements the cream topping and buttery toasted pine nuts, almonds, and pistachios. Serve this dessert with fruit after a meal, or offer it at your next tea party for something deliciously different.
