Samsa Pistachio

This is a treat native to Northern Africa and served at gatherings of families and friends.

These delicious little triangles are made by mixing almonds and hazelnuts to form a chewy inner filling, placed in a crispy outer layer made of thin brik filo sheets. Crushed pistachio nuts are then sprinkled on top to create a decadent treat that pairs perfectly with a warm mug of mint tea. 

Stand out from everyone else during your Eid celebrations with this Samsa Pistachio treat. Choose between an 8-piece package that is suitable for gifting an individual or an 18-piece package for large celebrations.

“What a nice treat! Little works of art. Light, crunchy, and delicious. The flavor and texture are perfect. Beautifully packaged.”
