  • 1/2 cup shelled pistachios, toasted
  • 1/4 cup unblanched whole almonds, toasted
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 12 sheets phyllo dough (14 inches x 9 inches)

  1. Place pistachios and almonds in a food processor; cover and process until finely chopped. Add the sugar, butter and cinnamon; cover and process until blended.
  2. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a work surface. Spray with butter-flavored cooking spray. Repeat with second layer. Keep remaining phyllo dough covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to avoid drying out. Spread 1/3 cup nut mixture over phyllo to within 1 in. of sides; drizzle with 1 tablespoon honey. Layer with two more sheets of phyllo, spraying each layer with cooking spray.
  3. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting from the short side. Repeat with remaining phyllo, nut mixture and honey.
