Serves: 24 Preparation time: 20m Cooks in: 15m Ready in: 35m
1 pack filo pastry (10-11 sheets)
300 gr cream cheese
100 gr walnut pieces
2 tbsp strawberry jam
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil, for the pastry sheets
1 cup runny honey
1 tbsp cinnamon ground
In a bowl mix well the cream cheese, walnuts and strawberry jam. Keep in the fridge.
Preheat the oven to 200C. Lay the filo pastry flat on a work surface and cover with a clean slightly damp tea towel to prevent it from drying out. Take one sheet of pastry and place it flat on the work surface. Cut it lengthways. Place a heaped spoonful of mixture on the end of each strip, fold a little pastry over the filling, then fold in the edges. Loosely roll to form a cylinder.
Place filo rolls on oiled baking sheet, a little apart. Brush well with olive oil and bake for 10-15 minutes until lightly golden and crisp.
Heat honey with two spoonfuls of water. Place filo rolls on serving plate and drizzle with syrup. Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve while still warm.
