Baklava Roll-ups

Cassie *


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.

How to Make Baklava Roll-ups


  • 1Simmer 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.
  • 2Cut 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
  • 3Brush 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.
