Canadian cuisine is often summed up to 4 dishes:
Pudding du chômeur
Here is a nice treat you should try. A lot less famous, but very Canadian nonetheless.
Maple and peanut rolls
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 !
