      Title: Kadaifi
 Categories: Greek, Desserts
      Yield: 16 Servings
 
           Karen Mintzias
      1 lb Commercial raw kadaifi dough
    1/2 c  Sweet butter; melted
  1 1/2 c  Finely chopped almonds *
  3 1/2 c  Granulated sugar
           Ground cinnamon
    1/2 c  Orange juice (optional)
      2 c  Water
    1/2 c  Honey
      2 tb Lemon juice
 
  *Note: Use blanched almonds.
  
  Open the raw kadaifi dough to the air for 10 to 15 minutes. Spread
  half the pastry evenly over the bottom of a 9 x 12 x 3-inch baking
  pan and brush with half the butter. Meanwhile, combine the almonds,
  1/2 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, and orange juice in a small
  bowl. (The orange juice will make the mixture like a paste that can
  be spread with a knife.) Spread the almond mixture over the kadaifi
  and cover with the remaining dough. Brush with the remaining butter
  and bake in a moderate oven (350 F) for 40 minutes or slightly
  longer, until golden on top.
  
  Meanwhile, boil the remaining 3 cups sugar with water for 5 minutes.
  Stir in the honey and lemon juice, bring to a boil and keep hot. When
  done, remove the pastry to a rack to cool in the pan, then spoon the
  hot syrup over the pastry.  Cover with a dry towel and allow to cool
  thoroughly. When cool, cut into square or diamond shapes of any
  desired size. Dust with additional ground cinnamon just before
  serving on dessert plates.
