Ingredients


Makes: 32 servings (16 servings per roll)
  • 1 1/2 C (375 ml) honey
  • 1 C (250 ml) water
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) fresh lemon juice
  • 3 cloves (Whole)
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) Cinnamon (ground)
  • 1/4 C (60 ml) coarsely chopped blanched, unsalted almonds
  • 1/4 C (60 ml) coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 3 Tbsp (45 ml) sugar
  • 1-2 tsp (5-10 ml) Cinnamon (ground)
  • 24 sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed
  • 2-3 Tbsp (30-45) oil
  • Seasoning for Dukkah, to taste

Preparation


 
  • Preheat oven to 350° F (175° C).
  • In Multipurpose Pot - 8 C, combine honey, water, lemon juice, cloves and cinnamon over low heat. Stir for approximately 2 minutes, until honey is completely dissolved. Increase heat to medium and cook, without stirring, for approximately 10 minutes. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm. Remove cloves and discard.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine nuts, sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • Take 2 phyllo sheets at a time (cover remaining phyllo sheets with a damp, not wet, cloth to prevent drying), and place lengthwise on Sheet Pan lined with parchment paper. With Basting Brush, lightly brush with oil. Repeat procedure 5 more times, for a total of 6 layers per roll.
  • Sprinkle phyllo evenly with half nut mixture and drizzle with 1/4 of sauce mixture. Roll, starting at one of the long ends, to form a long, cigar-like cylinder.
  • Score top with a knife. Repeat to make a second roll. Bake for 20–30 minutes, or until phyllo is golden brown. Remove from oven.
  • Drizzle each log evenly with remaining sauce mixture. Sprinkle with Dukkah. Cool in pan on cooling rack.
  • Store covered at room temperature.
