Konafa is one of the hallmark desserts of the Middle East, with as many variations on its filling (think cheese, cream, nuts, chocolate, fruit, dates, clotted cream) as on its spelling (it is variously called knafeh, kunafe, konafa, knafe, kunafah - you get the idea). This version of konafa is filled with cream, dates and caramel.
