Noonu Enoch, welcome to eGullet!  I'm glad you asked the question about Lebanese desserts or sweets, because it sent me looking through the eGullet Culinary Institute ("eGCI") for Foodman's excellent primer, "Introduction to Lebanese Cuisine". I found a lot of other good courses along the way that I'd forgotten, so the search was helpful for me.

 

These courses are free, you can go through them at your own pace, and a link is provided for you to ask questions.  It's hard to find unless you already know it exists, so here's a link to the post:

It's a long post.  The dessert discussion is about halfway down.

Thanks for sharing the link @Smithy. It is a very helpful post. The desserts Baklava and Kunafe (or Kenafe) is very familiar but 'Asabih El haroos'  is something new for me.
