Sutlijash originates in Turkey, it's a Turkish widely known dessert. Today, it is prepared in every country in the Balkan, including Macedonia. Sutlijash is a family dessert, it's easy to prepare and comes in large quantities. I love sutlijash. I love everything that can be combined with cinnamon. And I like to eat it while it's still hot and with lots of cinnamon on top.
