Need specific recipe for greek pecan cookies?

Question by Who cares: Need specific recipe for greek pecan cookies?
At our last Greek Festival, they had cookies that were like little pieces of fillo that had been shaped into slight cups with sugar glazed pecans inside then baked. They held together really well and tasted alot like Baklava. Does anyone recognize this cookie, and if so…what is it called? I need to find the recipe for it.

It is Baklava prepared in individual bite size portions. By using a standard recipe with a twist, cutting the fillo dough into 3″ squares, hold the square in the palm of your hand and spoon the mixture (walnut size) into the center, slide the square from the palm of your hand, supporting with your middle fingers and with your index fingers and your thumbs push the corners up a bit then place them on your cookie sheet, bake as directed.


3 c. finely chopped pecans
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1 1/2 c. butter, melted
1 (16 oz.) pkg. frozen filo leaves, thawed

1 1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. water
2 tbsp. lemon juice
3/4 c. honey

Prepare Honey Syrup by heating sugar, water and lemon juice to boiling; stir until sugar is dissolved. Boil 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in honey. Cool.
Mix nuts and spices and assemble as discribed.
Bake at 350 for apporx. 12 minutes or until the fillo is golden brown. Once cooled drizzle the cookies with the Honey Syrup.
