Similar to Russian blinis, these delicious yeast-leavened pancakes are easy to prepare. Filled with cream and topped with candied flower petals and pistachios, these tiny treats are delicious. They are the perfect choice for a dessert buffet because they are beautiful to look at and they are so easy to pick up.


Specialty Ingredients

  • Zaher lamoon (sold as zaher jam or orange blossom jam, in specialty markets, or orange blossom jam online; you want the variety that actually has small candied petals).


Prepare Ahead

The pancakes can be prepared and filled several hours prior to serving. Garnish and refrigerate covered until ready to serve.
