There is no Moroccan Dessert display without these fabulous fillo pastries. I have streamlined this great Moroccan favorite confection, doing away not only with the pesky frying step, but with the no-less pesky syrup step (my secret: Pouring the honey on the piping hot pastries), making it in one fell swoop...
