SANSATHICOS (NUT FILLED TRIANGLES)
Source: "Cooking The Sephardic Way"  Yield: 80 pieces
Recipe Ingredients:
  • 1 lb. filo dough
  • 1 1/2 lb. shelled nuts (walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, pine nuts, mixed as desired)
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 3/4 c. bread crumbs
  • 1 Tbsp. (level) cinnamon
  • 1 c. oil (approximately)
  • Sesame seeds (lightly toasted) to sprinkle

SYRUP:

  • 2 c. sugar
  • 1 c. water
  • 1/2 lemon juice
Grind nuts; mix with sugar and crumbs. Set aside. Take one sheet of filo and cut lengthwise to make 4 long narrow strips. Dab each piece very lightly with oil (which is best done with a pastry brush). Fold over top and bottom of each piece about 1/2- inch. Place 1 level tablespoon of the nut mixture on one corner and fold over to form a triangle. Continue folding over and over until the end of the strip. Form several layered triangles. Place triangles on lightly greased pan and bake at 325oF until light golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Watch baking carefully as they burn easily. When baked, remove from pan and allow to cool on paper toweling.

SYRUP: Cook syrup ingredients together until a drop from a spoon threads slightly, (about 20 minutes). Do not overcook.

When triangles are cool, dip in warm syrup for not more than one minute. Remove and sprinkle with slightly roasted sesame seeds.

NOTE: This variation of baklava is also ideal for buffet receptions as it is an elegant finger delicacy. It freezes well if carefully packaged in single layers.

Jewish Holidays -- Purim

 
Cooking Tips:  Lettuce and celery keep longer if you store them in paper bags instead of cellophane.
