Crumble the mizithra and mix it with the aromas and the sweet orange finely chopped.

Make the myzithra in 10 small 25 g rolls and leave them aside to fill the cantaifi course.

Make cataifi soften and divide it into 10 equal pieces. Cover with a wet towel to prevent the sheet from drying out.

Take each piece and add the filling along. Roll in roll with light-fast movements and place them in a well buttered baking pan leaving a gap between them.

Sprinkle cantaifi with butter, which we have warmed up well.

Then bake in a well preheated oven about 40-45 minutes at 175C.

While cantaifi is baking, warm the syrup that has left from the sweet orange or quince.

As soon as we get them out of the oven, sprinkle them with warm syrup. Finally, garnish with grated pistachio.

Leave them at least 2-3 hours to "rest" and absorb the syrup. Now they are ready for enjoyment!


If we want cantaifi more juicy, we have to add honey.
