Nutty Holiday Logs
Plus+ 2 Per Serving
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1/3 cup plus 5 teaspoons sugar, divided
1 tablespoon freshly grated orange zest
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
8 sheets phyllo dough, (9-by-14-inch), thawed

1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 300°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or nonstick
To prepare logs: Combine nuts, 1/3 cup sugar, orange zest, cinnamon and cloves in a
Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a clean, dry surface. Coat thoroughly with cooking
spray. Top with another sheet of phyllo and coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle one-quarter
of the walnut mixture (about 1/3 cup) evenly over the phyllo.
Using a sharp knife, cut the large phyllo rectangle lengthwise into 3 strips then in half
crosswise to form 6 smaller rectangular strips.
Beginning at the short ends, loosely roll each strip into a neat log. Repeat with the
remaining phyllo and walnut mixture.
Place the logs about 1/2 inch apart on the prepared baking sheets. Spray tops lightly with
cooking spray and sprinkle with the remaining 5 teaspoons sugar.
Bake the logs, in batches, until golden, about 25 minutes. Let cool completely.
To prepare topping: Place chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe dish. Microwave on
High for 30 seconds. Stir. Continue to microwave for 20-second intervals until melted,
stirring after each interval. Transfer the chocolate to a plastic sandwich bag. Snip off one
corner, being careful not to make the opening too large. Squeeze the melted chocolate
decoratively across the top of each cooled log. Let stand at room temperature until the
chocolate is completely set. (Makes 24 Cookies) 1 Cookie Per Serving
