Holiday traditions are not complete without special occasion foods, especially desserts. Thus, Ramadan in the Levant, think of the Christmas spirit meeting Thanksgiving dinner for an entire month, is not the same without qatayef. One type of qatayef is made from small pancakes filled with cheese or nuts (walnuts, pistachios, or almonds), cinnamon, and sugar. Then closed into half-moon shapes, sealed, deep-fried or buttered and baked. After which they are dunked, dipped, or drizzled with a floral orange blossom and rose-scented sugar syrup — we dare you not to go back for seconds or even thirds!
