OK, there will be those who will feel that I should not rate because I changed the recipe, but the fact is, my family loved these, and I'm sure they would be equally (or more so) tasty following the original recipe. For the vegetarians in my tribe, I substituted a package of Yves Veggie Ground Chicken, and used cooked quinoa instead of brown rice to increase the protein. I made larger portions for main course servings using an icecream scoop to divide the mixture, getting 11 phyllo packages (I used an envelope fold). I baked at 375F until they were golden brown...and delicious. Many thanks for submitting this special recipe.

Very tasty! I'm keeping this recipe to make again, with some alterations. I found the original recipe to be a bit too bland for my liking, so I doubled the honey and cinnamon and added about 1/8 tsp. more each of the cumin and cloves. The next time I make these, I'll add about 1/4 cup raisins. BTW, my 3 year old declared these "too spicy" even though I used a bit less of the called amount of red pepper flakes. If serving this to those with sensitive palates, I'd recommend using 1/4 tsp. or less of the red pepper flakes.

These are wonderful & full of flavor. The almonds give them a nice crunch and the spices are well balanced. I made larger triangles and ended up with 8 servings. I will make these again.
