This is a wonderful recipe for Purim.


  • 3 cups almonds
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cardamom
  • 2 tablespoons rose water or orange blossom water
  • 1 package filo pastry


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grind the almonds and mix together with remaining ingredients. The mixture should be moist.
  3. Cut the filo into 3 parts and cover with a damp towel. Take one piece of filo and fold it about 2 inches from the bottom up. Insert a pencil in the fold. Put one tablespoon of the mixture above the pencil and roll. Push the 2 sides to the middle and slide the pencil out.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes, until light golden in color.
