Kahi is the national Iraqi breakfast. I think it should become yours too! Who can resist a fluffy phyllo pastry topped with cream and honey?
sheets of store-bought phyllo dough
of 35% cream
?1.5 tablespoons of cornstarch
Mix 1/4 cup of cream with the cornstarch in a saucepan. Add the remaing cream and mix well.
Heat on medium, stiring constantly, until is comes to a slow boil and thickens.
Pour the cream into a lasagna dish and leave to cool for 2 to 4 hours on the counter. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning preheat the oven to 375 F. Brush a baking sheet lightly with butter
Brush generously the first sheet with butter. Stack the next sheet and repeat until all 4 sheest are in a pile.
Cut in 4, each stack will be 9x7 inches. Fold each stack once right to left, and top to bottom. The final size should be about 4x3 inches.
Brush each side of the stacks with butter and place them on the baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the dough is golden brown.
Leave too cool slightly and serve with spooned qeymar and a generously drizzle of honey.
