- 1 package Katayef (shredded filo dough)
- 3 sticks sweet butter or margarine (melted)
- 1 pound fresh ricotta cheese
- Sweet syrup
- In a large bowl, fluff the Katayef until it is all pulled apart. Pour the melted butter over the Katayef and keep on fluffing so it is all mixed together. Grease an oven-proof dish and layer 1/2 of the Katayef dough on the bottom. Spread all of the ricotta cheese over the dough, and layer with the remaining dough. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 40–50 minutes or until golden brown on top. Pour syrup on top and serve.
