The Almond Finger originated in Morocco but also became a Tunisian tradition. A blend of almonds and hazelnuts rolled in crispy brik filo sheets, the Almond Finger is usually a “morning pastry”—Its combination of nutty and sweet flavors make it pair perfectly with coffee.
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.

I finally tried these delectable little bites of phyllo and almond. They are addictively delicious with the perfect delicate crunch. They come individually wrapped so you can order them in bulk and readily share a handful with friends or family, by placing them in one of your numerous boxes you have from all the other Layla's treats you have ordered previously!
