Step by Step Instructions
  • Step 1: Place the butter, flour, egg yolks, salt, rosewater and half a glass of water in the bowl of the electric mixer and beat for a few minutes, until all the ingredients are combined together. Continue mixing the dough for approximately 4 minutes, until it becomes smooth and homogeneous.
  • Step 2: Remove the dough from the bowl and place it on a floured surface. Knead it using your hands. Divide the dough into small pieces and roll them out to dimensions of about 4 mm thickness and 7x14cm.
  • Step 3: Spoon some filling in the middle and roll cylindrically like a cigar. Seal the ends by pressing together using a fork, fry in very hot olive oil until golden brown on all sides. While hot, dip them into cold syrup for only one minute.
  • Step 4: Serve by first garnishing them with some fig jam and dusting with ground cinnamon.
