  • 1/2 pack puff pastry (about 200g ready puff pastry square pack) - عجينة الباف باستري
  • 2 cup milk - لبن
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract - خلاصة الفانيليا
  • 1 tablespoon butter - زبدة
  • 4 tablespoon sugar - سكر
  • 1 handful raw nuts (almonds, hazelnuts and/or coconut) - مكسرات
  • 2 teaspoon raisins - زبيب
  • 6 teaspoon cream - قشطة

Step by step

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C. In a baking tray, arrange 6 squares of puff pastry. Bake until puffed and nicely golden. Set aside and leave to cool.
  2. Use your hands to break 3 puff pastry squares into each of the 2 small tajeens. Add nuts and raisins to taste, then set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan, gently heat the milk and mix it with the butter, sugar and vanilla. Pour the milk over the pastry in each tajeen, making sure it covers all the pastry.
  4. Spoon the cream on top and bake in a 180C for 30 minutes or until the top is nice and golden.
