Honey Cinnamon Rollups
Total TimePrep: 35 min. + cooling Bake: 15 min.
This was tasty but less crisp than I expected. If I make again I will bake longer or add only some of syrup.
Basically a baklava roll up without all the extra work. Love the nutty flavor!
Regarding the measurements on the walnuts: the recipes states to use two sheets of phyllo stacked one on the other for each roll-up. That comes to 1 1/2 cups of walnuts for the filling and 1/2 cup of coffee o sprinkle on top.
My daughter loves baklava, so I can't wait to try this recipe for her! Sounds delisih, and easy.
Oh my. Just came across this recipe. Sounds fabulous. I am anxious to make but have couple of questions. Can these be made the day before? Also, what about making (but not baking) and freezing them. I normally like to make this type of recipe a day or two ahead of any parties I give. These look delicious. Thank you for any suggestions or help you can give.
The recipe directions are not written for a novice, David! Toast walnut halves or pieces in the oven on a baking sheet or in a pie/cake pan. Bake at 350 F for 8-10 minutes, until golden. Stir after 5 minutes in the oven. You can also toast in a pan on the stove using low heat. Stir frequently to prevent burning. Crush or chop nuts after roasting and cooling.
I've made several variations of this. I've used cardamom for the cinnamon, used black walnuts or pistachios, used canned pie filling (raspberry or apricot for the nuts when giving to someone allergic or has a dislike for nuts in general. Also have used honey and rosewater for the syrup.
Should i assume #4 Phyllo?
This was great! Had phyllo from another recipe and had all other ingredients. Used almonds instead of walnuts because that's what I had. I ground up the almonds and THEN toasted. Came out fine. Syrup is supposed to be thin, I think? It makes 24 pieces. I used 1/4 cup almond mixture on each and had plenty for topping. They came out great and I will definitely make again!!
