Ingredients

How to make it

  • Place rack in center of oven, and heat oven to 325 degrees. Brush a
  • 9-by-9-inch pan with melted butter. Set aside.
  • Combine almonds, walnuts, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Place one sheet of phyllo on a flat work surface. Brush with melted butter.
  • Fold the long sides in to form a 9 1/2-by-15-inch rectangle. Brush folded
  • edges with butter. Place a second piece of phyllo over first sheet, and
  • gather it like a curtain to fit inside rectangle. Brush with butter.
  • Sprinkle 3 tablespoons of the nut mixture over the bottom one-third of the
  • phyllo rectangle.
  • Fold phyllo over to cover nuts.
  • Brush folded phyllo with
  • butter.
  • Spread 1/4 cup nuts in a 1-inch-wide line parallel to, and about 1
  • inch from, the edge of pastry.
  • Fold over once to cover nuts.
  • Roll like a
  • cigar almost to the end.
  • Fold in ragged edges, and brush them with butter.
  • Finish rolling, and fold ends under.
  • Place seam-side down in prepared pan.
  • Brush with butter.
  • Repeat with remaining phyllo and filling, laying each
  • roll next to the other so they are touching.
  • Cut rolls crosswise into 21
  • pieces total (drag knife through a second time to assure a clean cut).
  • Transfer to oven, and bake until crust and nuts are evenly golden, 1 hour
  • to 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  • Remove pan from oven, and cool for 10 minutes.
  • In the mean time, in a saucepan, bring 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water to a boil til dissolved.
  • Take off of heat and add 1/2 cup honey. (Attiki brand if you can find it)
  • Pour cool Honey Syrup over pastry; it will come about three-quarters of the
  • way up the sides.
  • Let sit until most of the liquid is absorbed and nuts
  • are saturated, about 30 minutes.

    Thank you! I know it will taste better than anything I can buy, esp because of the honey syrup. Most do not use honey anymore. YMMMMY
