    These look nice and are delicious according to all who have tried them including DH who supposedly hates walnuts. I suggest looking at photos on Google if you have never seen these before trying to prepare them. Modified from a recipe on

    Serves: 18-24



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 lb kataifi pastry, unfrozen per package instructions (may not be halal if contains lecithin, found in Greek and some Middle Eastern shops)
    • 1 lb butter, melted (may use less but it's always good to have enough!)




    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350F (175C).
    2. 2
      Prepare syrup:.
    3. 3
      Heat the water in a saucepan over low heat. Add the sugar and stir to dissolve.
    4. 4
      Add the lemon juice, peel, and cloves, and bring to a boil.
    5. 5
      Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
    6. 6
      Stir in the honey, remove from the heat, strain, and set aside to cool.
    7. 7
      Prepare filling:.
    8. 8
      In a mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients for the filling and blend well with a wooden spoon.
    9. 9
      A word about kataïfi dough:.
    10. 10
      This dough comes commercially packaged in a long strip, about 3 inches wide. To prepare it for this recipe, lay the long strip out on a clean work surface and divide it into 18-24 pieces, gently spreading the strands out a bit if they clump together. Each piece will be used to create an individual kataïfi roll. Keep unused dough covered with a piece of waxed paper and a damp towel on top of that to keep it from drying out.
    11. 11
      Brush a strip with melted butter.
    12. 12
      Place a tablespoon of the filling at one end of the strip and roll up into a cylinder, tucking in any stray pieces of dough. Take care to roll the pastry tightly so that the filling is securely enclosed.
    13. 13
      Place the rolls seam side down in a lightly buttered baking dish, close together but not squashed, and brush well with butter. Bake for 45-60 minutes, until golden brown and crispy looking.
    14. 14
      Remove from oven, pour cool syrup over the pastry and cover with a clean towel. Let cool about 3-4 hours as it absorbs the syrup.
