Another recipe with a strange name. I can hear you say that :). Actually I agree with you it really has a strange name and a bloody. An Egyptian classic as old as time, gets an upgrade with the use of delightfully delicious PALMIERS (lunettes) instead of regular 'ol puff pastry or roaa (Egyptian flat bread). Oodles of crushed palmiers get mixed with nuts, sweetened hot milk, topped with whipped cream and broiled to perfection.
