    Ambervim's Note:

    Kataifi is a popular Middle Eastern pastry made with shredded phyllo dough, also called Kataifi. In the traditional recipe you roll 3 inch strips around the nuts. I have made it like a cake -- MUCH EASIER. You can find it in your better local Greek or Middle Eastern market. Supposedly you can cut phyllo into thin strips yourself, however it would not be nearly as wonderful as the package is so fine and marvelous. I am going to use this as a topping for savory casserole. Be creative and use other nut combination. Pistatios, pecans, etc.
