Sweet Phyllo Bites
Method

This is a sweet little treat made in Greece called “Kourkoubinia”. Crunchy, aromatic and sweet… perfect for a quick fix for your sweet tooth! 

  • Place all of the ingredients for the syrup in a pot and bring to a boil.
  • As soon as the mixture comes to a boil, allow to boil for 1 minute and set aside to cool.
  • Brush a sheet of phyllo dough with some vegetable oil. Brush the edge, a 5 cm border with some water and dust with some flour. This will help the borders stick together and the remaining part of the sheets of phyllo from sticking together.
  • Place another sheet of phyllo over it and repeat the same process. Brushing with oil and then brushing the border with water and dusting with flour.
  • Roll into a cylinder, being careful to align the edges so that the border brushed with water and flour can stick together securely.
  • Repeat the same process with the remaining sheets of phyllo.
  • You should have a total of 5 cylinders.
  • Let them rest for 20 minutes, to allow the phyllo to “set” and stick together.
  • Cut cylinders into 1.5 cm pieces.
  • Fry in batches over medium heat until golden.
  • When ready, transfer to a plate lined with paper towels and immediately add to pot with cold syrup.
  • Let them soak for 1 minute and remove with a slotted spoon.
