Osmalieh

Just Call This Levantine "Candy Floss" Dessert Kunefe's Cousin

Osmalieh is a traditional Lebanese dessert prepared with baked vermicelli pastry sandwiched between sweet cream and topped with Arabic candy floss or fairy floss, the Middle Eastern equivalent to conventional candy floss. What makes this dish unique is the sweet nostalgia brought back from candied chickpeas, as well as the delicate scent of orange blossom and earthy pistachios. Another great reason to make Osmalieh at home is the quick cooking time due to almost all of the ingredients being pre-made and available at most grocery stores.
