A delicious dessert sort of like a jelly roll but without the jelly. Use your favorite chopped nuts. Easy to make and a favorite around the holidays. Serve with warmed maple syrup.

  • In a medium bowl, stir together pecans, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg until well combined.

  • Working quickly to prevent dough from drying. Brush each sheet of phyllo with melted butter and stack them. Sprinkle the dough evenly with the nut mixture and roll, loosely. Cut with a sharp knife into 10 slices. Place slices on a baking sheet and brush with melted butter.

  • Bake in preheated oven 25 to 30 minutes, until golden. Let cool before serving.

I didn't have enough nuts so I used a little chocolate to make the two cups of nuts. It really worked out well. It was also a very big hit with my kids!! This one's a keeper!! Thanks! Read More

The flavor is great but it is dry. I will make it again but I would like to make the nut mixture with more moisture. I will also bake it whole rather than sliced just to keep it together. I also think that ice cream would be a great addition to serve it with hot. Read More

I made this recipe into triangles and it still worked perfectly. It was my first time using phyllo but after a few I got the hang of it. Also I added a few chocolate chips peanut butter chips and Heath bits to the filling for variety. They were sinfully delicious! Read More

This was simple and tasty. I used butter spray on the dough to save some calories. It was a little dry but went great with ice cream (thanks to the reviewer that suggested it!) Read More
