It all starts with making the crisp brik sheets. The batter is made into an extremely thin sheet (Less than 0.04 inch) by cooking on a flat hot surface. This step is critical. You want the sheet to be crispy but malleable enough to be rolled. One extra second of cooking and you’ll end up with a sheet that’s too hardened.
Once the brik filo is ready, we mix our finest almonds and hazelnut with syrup so that everything can hold together. Once the mix is done, we roll it in the brik filo sheets and voila—Almond Cigar. Pairs well with Turkish coffee.
