Layali Lubnan (Lebanese nights) dessert recipe

This is a well-known Arabic dessert made of milk, semolina and thick cream. It is a dessert of two layers, the bottom is thick and the top layer is smooth and creamy.

The thick cream topping is sweet enough with the addition of the icing sugar; however you can also add some sugar syrup for more sweetness if preferred.
