Kunefe is a really famous Turkish dessert made with saltless cheese and shredded kataifi pastry soaked in sweet syrup. If you find Kadayif or Baklava too sweet, you must absolutely try this sweet cheese pastry. What makes this dessert different from others is that it must be eaten hot, right after it is cooked.
Also, it has a very well balanced combination of cheese and sugar, so it’s not heavy and you can even ask for a second portion! The quality of cheese inside is pretty significant to reach this perfection. It must be an unsalted melting cheese so that it complements the sweetness of the dessert.
