I found this recipe a few years ago in an international cookbook. Something different, something I had to try, and still like to try 🙂

Ingredients for 4 people:

  • 150 grams of dried and pitted dates
  • 30 grams of raisins, soaked overnight in fresh orange juice
  • 50 grams of marzipan
  • 30 grams of chopped walnuts
  • 30 g chopped pistachios
  • A pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves
  • 8 sheets phyllo dough (very thin) (or puff pastry, which is a bit easier to handle)
  • Egg white
  • A little oil for frying
  • 2 oranges

Directions:

  • Submerge the raisins for one night in fresh orange juice.
  • Remove them from the orange juice, and press the juice out of them. (Drink the juice, it is extremely tasty now).
  • Chop the dates, walnuts, pistachios and raisins fine with the kitchen robot.
  • Add the cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
  • Mix them with the marzipan and create a paste of the mixture.
  • Now it is time to taste the mixture 🙂
  • Roll the mixture into a piece of phyllo dough (or puff pastry).  Use some egg white to fix the candies.
  • Bake the candies shortly in a pan to make them brown on all sides.
  • Enjoy and surprise your guests 🙂
