Preparation Time 45 minutes
Cooking Time 20 minutes

Makes 16


105g (3/4 cup) slivered almonds, coarsely chopped
100g white chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 tbs caster sugar
12 sheets filo pastry
60g unsalted butter, melted
225g (1 cup) white sugar
125ml (1/2 cup) water
5 cardamom pods, bruised
1 tbs fresh lemon juice


Place the almonds, chocolate and caster sugar in the bowl of a food processor and process until finely chopped.

Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Place the filo on a clean work surface. Cover with a clean tea towel, then a damp tea towel (this will prevent it drying out). Brush 1 filo sheet with melted butter. Top with another filo sheet and brush with melted butter. Repeat with another filo sheet and melted butter. Cut into quarters. Spoon 1 tablespoonful of almond mixture along the centre of 1 narrow edge of each filo stack. Fold in sides and roll up to create a cigar shape. Place, seam-side down, on the lined tray and brush with melted butter. Repeat with remaining filo sheets, almond mixture and melted butter. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.

Meanwhile, place white sugar and water in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until the sugar dissolves. Add cardamom pods. Increase heat to high and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 5 minutes or until syrup thickens. Stir in the lemon juice.

Place cigars in a heatproof dish. Drizzle over the syrup. Serve.


You can prepare this recipe to the end of step 1 up to 2 hours ahead. Continue from step 2 up to 1 hour ahead.
