  • Servings: 20
  • Preparation Time:



  • 1 lb Blanched almonds
  • 1 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 tbl Orange blossom water*
  • 2 tbl Melted butter
  • 1 lb Fillo sheets, each 12x17 inches
  • 1 cup Vegetable oil
  • 1 cup Honey, warmed
  • 2 tbl 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 triangles.
  • 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.
