The Cream Filled Pastry “Warbat”

The Cream Filled Pastry “Warbat”

You can consider warbat the triangular sibling of baklava, only instead of phyllo pastry filled with nuts, the pastry is stuffed with a sweet cream or custard called “ashta” which has a consistency similar to clotted cream. Therefore, this dessert is also referred to as “Warbat bil Ashta.”  Like baklava, the phyllo layers have that rich brown butter flavor, though melted ghee is traditionally used to coat the dough. This rich dessert is usually served for special occasions like weddings, showers, and holidays like Ramadan. The perfect accompaniment to this sweet and decadent treat is unsweetened cardamom tea or a strong Arabic coffee.
