  • Open a sheet of crust and, using a brush, sprinkle with butter and sprinkle with the crushed ingredients (about 1 tbsp for each sheet).
  • Place the needle on the leaf at the bottom (put a needle or stick or straw) so that it protrudes from the leaf left and right.
  • Wrap 1/3 of the sheet from bottom to top and then roll to wrap the whole sheet.
  • With your fingers we “strain” the leaf inwards and remove the needle.
  • Place all the saragli in a buttered pan.
