2 Unit(s)
40 Gr
40 Gr
Almond powder
60 Gr
Brown sugar
5 Ml
Orange blossom water
100 Ml
Melted butter

Preparation time: 40 min

Preheat your Oven at 400 °F

  • Preparation

    Peel and cut the bananas into small cubes.  Roast the pistachios in the oven for 3 minutes.  Get the phyllo ready by opening the package, laying it out and covering with a damp cloth.  In a mixing bowl, combine the banana, nuts, brown sugar and orange blossom water.

  • Pastilla

    Place a sheet of phyllo on a flat surface and brush with melted butter.  Fold the sheet in 2 and repeat this process once.  Place a little bit of the banana mixture in the center and fold over to seal.  Transfer to a baking sheet and cook for roughly 10 minutes or until golden and crispy.  Sprinkle with icing sugar before serving.

These can be cooked on the barbecue just be careful with your heat management as it is very easy to burn phyllo dough.
