Time for a Canadian treat

Canadian cuisine is often summed up to 4 dishes:

Nanaimo bar
Pudding du chômeur
Beaver tails

Here is a nice treat you should try. A lot less famous, but very Canadian nonetheless.

You will need:

  • 10 phyllo pastry sheets
  • 200 gr of coarsely ground peanuts
  • 50 gr of brown sugar
  • 1 heaping tbsp of butter
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • Maple sirup

Start by mixing the peanuts, sugar, butter and vanilla together. Then roll this mixture in a long bar and cut it in 10 pieces.

On the phyllo sheet side that is the closest to you, put a piece of the peanut dough.
Fold the sides of the phyllo towards the center and then roll it tight around the peanut dough to make a cigar-like pastry.

Put on a baking pan covered with parchment paper.

Cook for 10 minutes at 200°C or 390°F.

As soon as they are out of the oven, glaze with lots of maple syrup and enjoy !
