Layali Lebnen (Semolina Pudding)

With a name that means ‘Lebanese Nights’ in Arabic, you can be certain that Layali Lebnen was created to cool you down during hot sweltering days. With a base made from semolina flour, this creamy and delicate dessert is super easy to make, packed with the floral citrus fragrance of both orange blossom and rose water. Make this dessert a few days before and refrigerate before serving. When it’s time to serve, top the Layali Lebnen off with chopped nuts and sugar syrup-you’re good to go!
