Description

Roll up for these crispy, crunchy little parcels of honeyed nuts and filo.

Ingredients

  • 100g walnuts
  • 100g blanched almonds
  • 100g pistachio kernels
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange rind
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 sheets filo pastry
  • 50g butter, melted
  • 1 orange
  • 125ml (1/2 cup) honey
  • 55g (1/4 cup) caster sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Line baking tray with baking paper. Process walnuts, almonds and pistachios in a food processor until finely chopped. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in sugar, rind and cinnamon.
  2. Place 1 sheet of filo on a clean work surface. Brush with a little melted butter. Top with another filo sheet. Repeat with remaining filo and butter to form a stack. With the shortest side facing you, spread nut mixture evenly over filo sheet, leaving a 1cm border. Carefully roll up from the shortest side to enclose filling.
  3. Place strudel, seam-side down, on the lined tray. Brush with remaining butter. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden and crisp.
  4. Meanwhile, use a zester to zest the orange rind. Juice orange. Place the zest and juice in a saucepan with the honey and sugar. Stir over low heat until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium. Simmer for 5 minutes or until syrup thickens slightly.
  5. Drizzle the strudel with the warm syrup and cut into serving portions.
