Iftar menus usually have several tempting dessert choices, such as the classic konafa. It is buttery layers of phyllo dough that are stuffed with a luscious cream or nut filling. Then, the konafas are saturated with a sweet, citrusy syrup. Konafa has been called the Middle Eastern version of a Danish. Serve it warm from the oven, or chill it in the fridge.
