      I make this yearly at christmas, and I was so happy to read that your version does not contain honey. Neither does mine. The only thing I found negative in this recipe is the margarine. You cannot use margarine, you must use clarified butter, or it is called ghee. If u use margarine the pyhlo dough will get soggy. I also do not put the rose water in my filling, only a small anount of butter.
