You’ve just finished a suhoor or iftar meal, and you really want to eat something else.
You’re craving something sweet, like a cookie or a slice of cake. Or something like the baklava pistachio from Layla’s Delicacies that makes people say:
“Heavenly delicious, there is no word to describe how good these are, very special!” - Luis Torres, Brooklyn, United States.
Fasting from dawn to dusk is not easy. However, Muslims worldwide value the month of Ramadan because it is a time for repentance and piety.
During this holy month, while you’re focused on becoming a better version of yourself, it is essential to care for your health. Eating a balanced meal for suhoor and iftar is one way. Another is choosing the right dessert that satisfies your cravings without being overly sweet and unhealthy.
The baklava pistachio at Layla’s Delicacies is a perfect choice for dessert. It has a unique balance of sweet and nutty flavors layered within two slices of crispy filo. This little taste of the Mediterranean is divine; you might want to place a baklava order right away.
Before you do that, hear us out.
How about including a variety of sweets when you order your baklava? Here are three delectable handmade treats that can make your Ramadan more joyous.
For melt-in-your-mouth goodness and a subtle rose taste, look to Kaak Warka. It’s a Tunisian staple dessert shaped like a tiny donut. For the almond-lover, Kaak Warka is the perfect pastry with only a little sugar and just enough almond taste.
At Layla’s Delicacies, we hand make Kaak Warka by infusing almond paste with our signature rose water. The result? A delightful treat that has a subtle yet distinct sweet taste and nutty flavor.
Going by the reviews we get, our Kaak Warka is certainly a crowd-pleaser:
“What did I think about Kaak Warka? I see an empty box in my kitchen and vaguely remember opening it a few days ago and seeing 18 pieces inside. Either I'm sleepwalking or denying I ate them all up. And I don't sleepwalk. I see Kaak Warka as a future budget item or, as I like to think of it, as a necessary luxury item for me. Yum!” - Carol Schachter, New York, United States.
Tunisian desserts are incomplete without Samsa pistachio. These triangle-shaped treats are an excellent choice for those looking for a unique sensory experience with an origin in North Africa.
The samsa pistachio we make has three layers:
- A moist filling of crunchy almonds and hazelnuts
- A thin and delightfully crispy brik filo outer layer
- A coating of fresh pistachio
Your suhoor tea will pair nicely with a piece of this gourmet pastry. However, we have to warn you — one samsa pistachio is never enough.
Don’t believe us? Here is what one of our customers had to say:
“Very good! Almost finished the whole box in one sitting! Delicious!” - Maria Miguel-Villegas, Bourbonnais, US.
What’s better than a nicely brewed cup of coffee to start your day? A piece or two of crunchy almond fingers from Layla’s Delicacies to go with it. Originally a Moroccan treat, almond fingers are a perfect morning pastry to prepare you for a day of fasting.
We make ours with a rich almond and hazelnut filling and wrap it with a crisp brik filo pastry. The delicate crunch of nuts and crackling of brik filo makes for a unique sensory experience that our customers rave about:
“Fresh, unique flavor and perfect texture, great with coffee ;)” - Yosr, Richmond, United States.
Besides giving these sweets a nutty flavor, almonds and hazelnuts have plenty of protein and fiber to keep you feeling full. They are also some of the most healthful nuts, so there’s really no reason for you not to have our almond fingers every time you break your fast.
The Four-Piece Discovery Box Makes the Perfect Eid al-Fitr Gift.

Since we discovered Layla’s he has been so happy and impressed with the quality and delicious taste of Layla’s pastries that we have ordered gifts for family and neighbors too. We sent this small box to my stepmother who lives alone - just a sweet thought to let her know we were thinking of her. It was the perfect size and she was delighted.” - Beth Morrow, Glen Ridge, United States
