Almond Brick

Almond Brick


  • 2 cups ground almonds
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • Pinch cinnamon
  • 1 cup canola vegetable oil
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 8 Thick Fillo Dough Wrappers
  • 3 tbsp honey


  1. Combine almonds, sugar and cinnamon.
  2. Gently heat ¼ of the oil and add the almond mixture, allowing to brown slightly.
  3. Remove almond mixture from heat and add the egg. Set aside to cool.
  4. Place 2 tablespoons of the filling at one corner of the Thick Fillo Dough Wrapper. Fold up one side over the stuffing and roll to form a triangle. Dab the last fold with water to seal. Set aside.
  5. Heat the remaining oil and fry pastry for 1 minute on each side until browned. Finish cooking in a preheated 400-degree oven for 3 minutes.
  6. Bring honey to a boil in a small saucepan and pour over bricks.
