 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Blanched almonds
  • 1 ts Ground cinnamon
  • 1 c Sugar
  • 2 tb Orange blossom water*
  • 2 tb Melted butter
  • 1 lb Fillo sheets; each 12x17
  • -inches
  • 1 c Vegetable oil
  • 1 c Honey; warmed
  • 2 tb Sesame seeds; toasted


Prepare the Almond Filling: In a food processor, chop the almonds to a
coarse consistency, then add the cinnamon, sugar, orange blossom water (can
be found in Middle Eastern stores), and melted butter and process to
combine the filling.

To Shape the Triangles: Take several fillo sheets and divide them in half
lengthwise and crosswise so that you have sheets that are 6 inches wide by
8- 1/2 inches long. Fold them lengthwise so that you have fillo strips 3
inches wide. This is the size that will be filled and folded into

Take 1 heaping teaspoon of the filling and put it on the lower left hand
side of the fillo. Fold it over to the right to make a triangle. Then fold
it over to the left and to the right again until you have folded the entire
sheet into a triangle. Seal the packages with beaten egg or a light mixture
of flour and water.

Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over moderate/low heat and brown the
pastries for about 2 minutes.

Plunge them into the honey and leave them for 10 minutes, turning them over
once. Remove and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Set aside to cool and dry.

Makes 20 triangles.
