Honey Walnut Cigars

If you've ever had a craving for baklava but really don't want to spend the next few hours making it, this will satisfy you. It's simple and much quicker. I threw this together with some extra filo dough and nuts we had around. It really hits the spot for a healthy filo dessert. Enjoy!

Honey Walnut Cigars

Yield: 8 servings
  • 4 sheets filo dough
  • 1/2 cup walnut pieces
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon citrus juice
Cooking Directions
  1. Tear a sheet of filo in half length-wise.
  2. Put some walnut pieces in the sheet, and roll it around the walnuts.
  3. Do this for all 8 cigars.
  4. Arrange in a dish, and bake in 350 degree oven until golden brown. This shouldn't take too long.
  5. Remove from oven to cool.
  6. Meanwhile, bring the honey, citrus juice, and water to a boil and then simmer.
  7. Lightly pour the honey mixture over the cigars. Let cool.
