This is a delicious and easy Lebanese dessert which can be made for Ramadan or any other time. This Lebanese Nights Dessert (Layali Lubnan), is a very famous Lebanese dessert widely served all over Lebanon. It is one of the most served dessert at home because it’s easy to make and tasty.
For The Semolina Layer / First Layer

4 Cups Milk
½ Cup Sugar
½ Cup Semolina
1 Teaspoon Rose water
For The Sugar Syrup
½ Cup Sugar
1 Cup Water
1 Teaspoon Rose water
For The Second Layer
2 Cups Milk
2 Tablespoons Sugar
2 Tablespoons Corn flour
½ Cup Cream Cheese
For Garnishing
½ Cup Finely Chopped Pistachios 
For the Semolina Layer
Add all the ingredients into a pan and cook the first layer till t becomes thick.
Pour it in a greased pan and set it in the refrigerator for an hour.
For The Second Layer 
Mix together all the ingredients in a pot with a whisk without any heat at first until there are no lumps. Then, bring to medium-high heat and keep whisking until it starts to thicken. It should look creamy and pourable. 
Pour on top of the first layer and keep it in the fridge for 6 - 8 hours.
Cling wrap it and refrigerate.
After it is cooled and set 
then loosen the sides with a butter knife and take this onto serving plate. 
Garnish it with pistachios. 
To Make The Sugar Syrup
Make the syrup in the meantime by mixing together the sugar and water. Let it come to a simmer for about 5-10 minutes until it slightly thickens. Let this cool completely.
Then drizzle all over the dessert as much as you like or drizzle to each person's slice. This is up to you. I cut a slice and then poured the sugar syrup on top.
Enjoy .. this is simply delicious...
