Znoud El Sit is a crunchy golden dessert that is loved by many in most Arab countries. It is one of the most famous sweets in Syria.

It consists of baklava dough stuffed with cream or pudding and poured over it, and then garnished with shredded pistachios, and in the recent period, it was served decorated with cream, chocolate or Nutella instead of immersing it in syrup.

This type of sweets has a high nutritional value, especially in the winter, because it provides the body with energy and heat, due to its richness in sugars and fats, while it can be served in the summer with a little ice cream.
