Om Aly is one of the most favorite desserts for a lot of Egyptians. Now with this easy recipe that my friend gave me, I can make it at home whenever I want.

Cuisine                                  Egyptian
Main ingredients                  Pastry, Milk, Double cream, Nuts
Time of preparation            15 Minutes
Time of cooking                  40 Minutes
Serving                                  8


5 sheets Pastry
5 cups Milk
2 tbsp Butter
3 tbsp Double Cream
1/4 cup Hazelnut
1/2 cup Raisins
1/4 cup Almonds
Sugar ,according to taste

Put pastry on a baking sheet and bake in a medium-high heat oven until golden and crispy.

In a small baking sheet put hazelnut and almonds and broil in oven for 4 minutes. Remove, peel or blanch and set aside.

Meanwhile, in a non-stick deep pan heat milk and sugar until boiling and sugar is dissolved (milk must taste a little sweeter than what you like).

Cut pastry with your hands into medium pieces and put in a large tagen (casserole). Add hazelnut, almonds and raisins and cover with milk to fill 2/3 of the tagen.

Heat oven to medium-high heat (200 C). Place tagen in oven for 15 minutes until pastry starts to absorb milk and its volume increases.

Remove from oven and spread butter and cream on top. Put back in oven and bake for 20 minutes more. If top doesn’t turn golden brown, broil for 2 minutes. Serve hot.
