Znoud El-Sit

I seriously had to stop myself from eating this entire plate full that is how good they were. The crunchy sweet texture with the light creamy filling is a perfect match for one another. These Lebanese beauties go perfect along side coffee or tea.

1 packet spring roll wrappers, defrosted for 30 minutes
2 (175 grams) cans qashta
sunflower oil to fry
sugar syrup for topping

1. In a 9-inch skillet on medium heat add oil. Spoon 2 tablespoons qashta along the left side of the wrapper. Fold the top and bottom to where they meet in the middle then carefully roll from the left to the right, seal down.

2. Place the rolls into the hot oil and allow them to cook until lightly golden. Drain on a paper towel and drench in sugar syrup.

Yields: 20

    aaaaah. I love anything that has cream in it and is deep fried and then drenched in syrup, particularly saffron syrup!

    We do the same thing, but with kiri cream cheese and fold them into triangles using the samboosa wrappers. Yummmmo!

    Salam alaikum wa ramatulah wa barakatu sister, This is UmmBinat. Insha Allah all is well. I would like to try these during Ramadan when I get a hold of the wrappers and someone else to eat them as we are gluten free. Do you always use canned qashta? BTW I want to invite you to play Ramadan food tag game at, http://www.food.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=340480&sid=d249e158a8789e3a7b1cc3b2a11dee56
