Umm Ali

Recommended Posts

Umm ali (Ali's Mother) is a scrumptios dessert from Egypt. Itis compared to bread pudding. I like to serve it with a little dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on top.




Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes



* 1 package of frozen puff pastry (17 ounces)

* 1 15 oz can of sweetened condensed milk

* 3 cups water

* 1/2 cup cream

* 3/4 cup pistachios, shelled, chopped

* 1/2 cup pine nuts

* 1/2 cup almonds

* 1/2 - 3/4 cups coconut flakes (depending on taste)

* 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract



Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Unroll puff pastry sheets and place on greased baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes. You want the puff pastry to be golden and puffed. Remove from oven. Do not turn oven off; you will be using it in a few minutes with the same temp.


Break puff pastry into small pieces (about 1-2 inches. Add nuts and coconut and be sure that they are mixed well and evenly distributed. Place nuts and bread in greased 9x12 baking dish.


In a saucepan, heat sweetened milk, vanilla, and water on medium heat. Allow to cook for about 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat then allow to cool.


Pour milk over puff pastry/nut mixture. Pour creme on top and bake uncovered for 15 minutes.


Serve warm.
