SERVINGS: 8
PREP TIME: 40
INGREDIENTS
1 10 oz can of almond paste
16 sheets phyllo dough
4 Tbsp butter
Powered sugar
DIRECTIONS

Remove almond paste from can.  Separate into 8 equal pieces.  Roll each piece into a 14” long “rope”.  Set aside.

Heat butter in medium skillet.

Stack 2 phyllo sheets on work surface (keep remaining sheets covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel- to keep them from drying out).  Place an almond paste “rope” on the long edge of the phyllo stack and roll the phyllo around the “rope”, creating a phyllo “rope”.  Curl the phyllo “rope” into a spiral and brown in butter until golden.  Repeat with remaining almond paste “ropes” and phyllo sheets.  Let cakes cool and dust liberally with powdered sugar.
