Directions

  1. Preheat oven to hot 220C and warm a baking tray.
  2. Heat oil in a frying pan and cook the onion over a low heat for 5 minutes.
  3. Add wine and sugar and cook for a further 10-15 minutes, until the onion is golden. Remove from heat and cool.
  4. Combine the cooled mixture with the parsley, anchovies and cheese.
  5. Keeping the filo covered while you work, take one sheet and brush lightly with the butter. Cover with another sheet of filo. Repeat. You will have used 3 sheets of filo.
  6. Spread the parsley mixture evenly over the pastry and top with 3 more sheets, buttering each layer as before.
  7. Firmly press down, then cut the pastry in half widthways. Cut each half into strips 1.5-2cms wide. Brush with butter, then gently twist each strip. Lightly season with black pepper.
  8. Place on the heated baking tray and bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.

These were very good. Anchovies make this recipe. Very tasty and flakey. [made for AUS/NZ recipe swap #20, Sept. 2008]
