    Great how-to, thanks for posting, i love this dessert 🙂 . Can you use Ghee instead of butter sticks? Does it make any difference?

    • Yes you can use ghee. Actually Thea is much better than butter when working with filo dough. If you go to knafeh recipe, you will notice that I added how to make ghee at home.

    • Hi Tim! Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I don’t see anything in the recipethat says it make six servings. It makes more than 20. I guess it was a miss understanding . Have a good one!
