So daggone good! I only made 1/2 the recipe (10 pastries) and was immediately remorseful that they will be gone, quickly! YUM! They do take a little while to get going and you have to be careful with your phyllo, but all the work is it's own reward, after the first bite! I really like the honey cinnamon syrup; that was like the cherry on top! Delicious! Thanks so much for sharing, momaphet!
