Categories: Desserts, Greek, Vegan
Yield: 16 servings
1 lb Commercial raw kadaifi dough
1/2 c Margarine, mixed with some
-- sweetener, melted
1 1/2 c Finely chopped almonds *
3 1/2 c Granulated sugar
1/2 c Orange juice (optional)
2 c Water
1/2 c Liquid sweetener
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 margarine mixture. 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 (350F) 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 sweetener 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.
