Phioto by: Lord-Williams
Make a dough with semolina, fresh milk and a little rose water. Grate the cheese well and mix it with the butter. If the cheese is dry and salty tasting soak it in water for 24 hours. After that mix the cheese and butter with the dough and let sit on the throuth.

Put enough oil in a frying pan to cover the pastries. Cut the dough into small wafers and make a hole in the middle. Fill the frying pan with wafers and turn them when browned. When done remove them and drizzle them with honey. Let sit 15 minutes. Remove them and put them in a glazed dish.  Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon and eat them if it be God’s will,
