Iranian Desserts

Desserts in the Middle East's Iran divide into two categories: moist, which includes French-inspired pastries, tarts, and cakes; and dry, which features cookies often with nuts inside. But perhaps the most popular Iranian dessert is Bamieh, an oval deep-fried dough, much like a funnel cake.
