Saraliiska Banitza

A type of Bulgarian dessert

Saraliiska Banitza


2 lbs flour,
1/2 cup walnut kernels,
4 cups sugar,
6 cups water,
pinch of salt,
2 tbsp butter.


Combine the flour, salt and 3 cups water and knead a medium-hard dough. Roll into thin sheets (makes about 10). You can also use filo dough sheets from the store instead. Baste each sheet with butter and top with crushed walnut kernels. Roll the sheet and arrange either lengthwise or in a circle in a better-lined dish. Bake for about 35 mins in 375 F oven. After it has cooled pour over the hot syrup made from combining sugar, 3 cups of water and vanilla.
