       Title: Kadaifi
  Categories: Desserts, Greek, Vegan
       Yield: 16 servings
       1 lb Commercial raw kadaifi dough
     1/2 c  Margarine, mixed with some
            -- sweetener, melted
   1 1/2 c  Finely chopped almonds *
   3 1/2 c  Granulated sugar
            Ground cinnamon
     1/2 c  Orange juice (optional)
       2 c  Water
     1/2 c  Liquid sweetener
       2 tb Lemon juice
   *Note: Use blanched almonds.
   Open the raw kadaifi dough to the air for 10 to 15 minutes.  Spread
   half the pastry evenly over the bottom of a 9 x 12 x 3-inch baking
   pan and brush with half the margarine mixture.  Combine the almonds,
   1/2 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, and orange juice in a small
   bowl. (The orange juice will make the mixture like a paste that can
   be spread with a knife.) Spread the almond mixture over the kadaifi
   and cover with the remaining dough. Brush with the remaining butter
   and bake in a moderate oven (350F) for 40 minutes or slightly longer,
   until golden on top.
   Meanwhile, boil the remaining 3 cups sugar with water for 5 minutes.
   Stir in the sweetener and lemon juice, bring to a boil and keep hot.
   When done, remove the pastry to a rack to cool in the pan, then spoon
   the hot syrup over the pastry.  Cover with a dry towel and allow to
   cool thoroughly. When cool, cut into square or diamond shapes of any
   desired size. Dust with additional ground cinnamon just before
   serving on dessert plates.
