Mighli (Caraway Cream)

This is more than a dessert: in Lebanon it is traditionally prepared to celebrate a birth (I was told that, strictly speaking, this was only for male births, but to hell with that) and also for Christmas (because baby Jesus), so now's the right time to share it. Ground caraway and even aniseed are not regular fare in Western supermarkets but you'll find it in spice shops, Middle-Eastern shops, and if all else fails, try eBay, or just grind the whole seeds, which seem to be more common.
I'll admit that this is not my favourite, but I love making it for friends who just had a happy event, and it is meant to be good for the mother after giving birth, with all these energy-packing nuts.
