  • 16 oz Phyllo Dough — #5 preferably
  • 4 oz butter — melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts — or pis
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 lb fresh pumpkin — finely shredded


  1. In a large bowl, combine the pumpkin, nuts, sugar, breadcrumbs and cinnamon. Stir to combine.

  2. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat.

  3. Open the phyllo dough and place on a working surface. Take 2 sheets out, brush with butter, and cut them into 4 stripes, along the shorter side. Add about 1 tbsps of filling on one end. Fold one corner of fillo diagonally across to opposite edge to form a triangle. Continue to fold triangle onto itself. Brush outside with butter.

  4. Place on the baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden.

    Take out of the oven and let them cool to room temperature. Dust with powdered sugar and cinnamon.

Recipe Notes

You can use one can of pumpkin puree, instead of the fresh pumpkin. Make sure you increase the amount of breadcrumbs to 1 1/4 cups.
