Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 c Sugar
1 1/2 c Water
2 tb Fresh Lemon Juice
3/4 c Golden Raisins
1 tb Grated Lemon Zest
3/4 c Water Or White Wine
1 1/2 lb Whole Milk Ricotta
1/2 lb Light Cream Cheese <<Or>>
1/2 lb Fresh Goat Cheese
1 lb Kataifi (Shredded Filo)
1 c Butter (2 Sticks), melted

Add the sugar, water and lemon juice to a saucepan and
bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10
minutes, washing down any sugar crystals on sides of
pan with a brush dipped in cold water. Set syrup aside
to cool.

In a separate small saucepan, warm the raisins and
lemon zest in the water or wine and allow to sit for a
few minutes for raisins to plump. Drain and coarsely
chop raisins and set aside. Reserve liquid.

Drain the ricotta of any excess liquid and beat it
together with the cream cheese. Stir in raisins.
Mixture should be soft and easily spreadable. If not,
beat in some of raisin poaching liquid.

Remove kataifi from box and loosen shreds in a large
bowl. Toss shreds with melted butter to coat. Arrange
half of the coated shreds in the bottom of a 9 x13
baking dish or pan and top with cheese mixture. Place
remaining kataifi evenly over top pressing them
lightly into cheese mixture. Bake covered with foil in
a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Uncover
and bake for another 30 minutes or until kataifi is
crisp and golden. Serve warm or at room temperature
drizzled with lemon syrup.
