Tufahije (singular: tufahija) is a Bosnian dessert made of walnut-stuffed apples stewed in water with sugar. It is very popular in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Croatia and Macedonia. Tufahije were introduced to the Balkans during Ottoman rule.

Etymology[edit]

The word tufahija stems from the Arabic word tuffāḥa (تفاحة), meaning "apple".

Ingredients[edit]

Tufahije is served in large glasses with their own glazed syrup and whipped cream on top.[1] It usually accompanied by coffee.[2]
