Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
Karen Mintzias
1 lb Commercial raw kadaifi dough
1/2 c Sweet butter -- melted
1 1/2 c Finely chopped almonds *
3 1/2 c Granulated sugar
Ground cinnamon
1/2 c Orange juice (optional)
2 c Water
1/2 c Honey
2 tb Lemon juice

*Note: Use blanched almonds.

Open the raw kadaifi dough to the air for 10 to 15 minutes. Spread half
the pastry evenly over the bottom of a 9 x 12 x 3-inch baking pan and brush
with half the butter. Meanwhile, combine the almonds, 1/2 cup sugar, 1
tablespoon cinnamon, and orange juice in a small bowl. (The orange juice
will make the mixture like a paste that can be spread with a knife.) Spread
the almond mixture over the kadaifi and cover with the remaining dough.
Brush with the remaining butter and bake in a moderate oven (350 F) for 40
minutes or slightly longer, until golden on top.

Meanwhile, boil the remaining 3 cups sugar with water for 5 minutes. Stir
in the honey and lemon juice, bring to a boil and keep hot. When done,
remove the pastry to a rack to cool in the pan, then spoon the hot syrup
over the pastry. Cover with a dry towel and allow to cool thoroughly. When
cool, cut into square or diamond shapes of any desired size. Dust with
additional ground cinnamon just before serving on dessert plates.
