  • ½ cup of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon
  • 6 sheets of fillo pastry
  • Melted butter
  • Confectioner’s sugar according to taste


  1. Mix the sugar with the cinnamon.
  2. Butter a sheet of fillo pastry and fold it in half across its length to result in a rectangle.

  4. Brush the top with butter and evenly sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the cinnamon sugar on top also, leave ¾-ich of the top edge free of sugar.
  5. Roll the fillo pastry up from the folded side so that it becomes a firm roll.
  6. Cut the roll into 3 equal pieces and reshape the ends where the cuts were made, so as to preserve the roll shape.

  8. Place the completed rolls close together, join side down, on a greased baking sheet.
  9. Brush the tops of the rolls with butter, and sprinkle each of the rolls with the cinnamon sugar.
  10. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-12 minutes until the rolls become crisp and golden brown.
  11. Allow the rolls to cool on a baking sheet, then sprinkle a bit of confectioner’s sugar on each roll prior to serving.
