Phyllo pockets sweet/savory

I watch food network a lot. Right from around 11:00 in the morning till my hubby is back from office, I have this channel and another going on one after the other. Its not that I sit and watch every episode but just have an eye on whats cooking. I was seeing this show on tv the other day when my mouth started watering. Its these tiny pockets of phyllo dough stuffed with nuts and honey. Tried it out and it was a success. Once served it was all over in no time ;)

Serves...2 ppl
Serve option... room temp

This is what u'll need....

Phyllo sheets 6
Melted butter 1/4 cup
Almonds 1/4 cup
Cashews 1/8 cup
Raisins 1/8 cup
Honey 2 tbspn
Brown sugar 1 tbspn
Sugar 1 tbspn

Here is the stir....
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Thaw the phyllo sheets and keep it covered with a wet kitchen tissue
  • Put almonds and cashews into a food processor and chop it coarsely. Toss in the raisins and blend it for a min
  • Get the mixture into a bowl and add honey, sugar and brown sugar
  • Take one phyllo  sheet and brush it butter. Top with another layer and do the same process with all the 6 sheets. Final layer should also be brushed with butter
  • Cut the sheet into 6 squares - 1 horizontal and 2 vertical cuts
  • Put a spoonful of the nut mixture into each square and fold it like an envelope
  • Lay all the tiny pockets on a greased baking sheet and brush the top of each pocket with some more butter
  • Bake it for 15-20 mins or until golden brown
  • I also made a savory version of this using a spicy potato mixture as stuffing. It was as good as the sweet one
