The classic filling for Atayef Asafiri is ashta. Ashta is a clotted cream made from whole milk. It can be made at home, but, to be honest I highly prefer the ricotta cheese filling. I use whole milk ricotta as I find the flavor much better and richer than skim, but, you can substitute for skim if you prefer. The ricotta filling is mixed with a sweet table cream.
