How to Make Nuts, Raisins and Shredded Coconut Pastry

Step-by-Step

  1. Place the sugar, water and lemon in a saucepan and simmer for about 20 minutes. Add the rose or orange blossom water at the end.
  2. Set aside. Mix the ingredients of the filling - you can add more cinnamon, raisin, coconut or add other nuts, according to taste.
  3. Cut the phyllo pastry into three finger wide strips. Keep them covered with a towel so they don't dry out. Brush with the oil and butter mixture onto each strip before you add the filling.
  4. Put a spoonful of filling in one of the strips. Fold the strip over the filling, folding towards the opposite corner as you go.
  5. Continue folding until the end of the strip, cut away any excess. Place the triangles on a greased baking tray or baking sheet.
  6. Put in the oven at 250 C until crisp and golden brown. Allow to cool before dipping in the warm syrup. They should be dipped in syrup just before eating.Place in cupcake liners.
  7. Serve with coffee and other Ramadan sweets, such as Qatayef, Fritters or, as here, Knafa fingers.
