  • Summary

    Every Easter when I was growing up, I would wake up to the smell of makoviy rulet, a poppy seed and nut roll that's a traditional baked delicacy popular all over Ukraine. Making the dough can be quite time-consuming, but here I’ve made the process quicker and easier by using store-bought phyllo pastry instead of the usual yeast dough. A slice of this strudel with some black tea with lemon (how we drink it in Ukraine) or coffee is heavenly.

    Ingredients

    • 3 cups pecans (about 10 oz.)
    • 1 cup whole milk
    • 3/4 cup poppy seeds
    • 10 Tbsp. unsalted butter, divided
    • 3/4 cup (packed) light brown sugar
    • 1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
    • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
    • 6 (17x12") sheets fresh phyllo pastry or frozen, thawed
    • 1 large egg, beaten to blend
    • Powdered sugar (for serving)
