raw beigli (a Hungarian delight)
Beigli is a traditional christmas treat in Hungary. Here is a delicious raw version.
1 fruit leather
1½ cup walnut, almond or poppyseed
½ cup dates
2 tablespoon cocoa or carob
sprinkle raisins, dried fruit
½ cup water
Make fruit leather: I use apple or plums, but can make it from any fruit. Process fruit in food processor or juicer. Spread it onto the dryer sheets and dehydrate. After about 8 hours, turn it over and dry for another few hours, until soft, leathery, not too dry. so simple and delicious by itself also.
filling: The given quantities for the ingredients are approximate, play with them yourself. Any kind of thick creamy sweet paste will do. Blend ingredients in food processor. Play with quantities, spices and ingredients. in traditional hungarian filling there is walnut and poppy seed.
Make a paste. Spread it onto fruit leather, play with thickness. Sprinkle dried fruit on it, then roll it up (a bit like sushi). You can let it sit for a little while but it is great to eat right then. Great snack, desert. Yummy. Enjoy!
