These are nice to have around over the Holidays, they last a long time..they aren't hard to make either.

I can't remember where I found this recipe, but I am so glad I did. I made it a tradition to make these every Christmas, and my kids love to help.

Ingredients

SYRUP

1 1/4 c
sugar
3/4 c
water
1 Tbsp
lemon juice
3 tsp
cinnamon
1 Tbsp
honey
pinch of ground cloves

FILLING

1 lb
ground walnuts - a food processor works well for this
1/4 tsp
ground cloves
1 tsp
cinnamon
2
egg whites

PHYLLO

1 lb
phyllo dough
1 c
melted butter
powdered sugar, for dusting

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Simmer all syrup ingredients in a small saucepan for 15 minutes and cool.

Beat egg whites till they have soft peaks and mix in filling ingredients and half of the prepared syrup.
2
Cut phyllo sheets in half.

Brush butter between each layer of dough.

Take a stack of 8 layers of dough and spread filling on it, then roll up.

Slice the roll to desired lengths and make a few tiny slits on the tops of the rolls
3
Brush them with remaining butter and bake at 350F for 25 minutes. I bake these on a jelly roll sheet pan.

Pour the rest of the syrup over the rolls once they are out of the oven.

After they cool, dust with powder sugar.
