    hi, i recently tried some delicious lebanese finger food; two of which i had never eaten before were sambousky and cheese puffs. both were made using the same pastry and deep fried. the cheese puffs had a filling made with feta cheese, onion and chilli, and the sambousky was made with a meat filling which had pine nuts as well. can anyone help with a recipe? i have tried google with sambousky, but there are no recipes, so i wonder if there is a problem with the spelling. "cheese puffs" is too generic to google, unfortunately. thanking you in anticipation.

    Hi! I found this which I believe to be what you are looking for with a slightly different name: Sanbusa Turnovers.

    Please let me know if you need more assistance!

    Sambusik is stuffed with all kinds of fillings.
    I just had one with mashed potatoes inside while in the middle east, I think that was one of my favorites.
    As far as the meat with the pine nuts go.
    Get some ground beef and season it as you like and brown it. Brown some pine nuts in a little bit of oil in a frying pan.
    Or for a more middle eastern flavor, season it with allspice, salt pepper and finely chop some onions up and let brown.

    There is no golden rule to the fillings so recipes will vary.
