Baklava x

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
16 ounces Walnuts chopped finely
1 cup Sugar
¼ cup Rosewater
3 tablespoons Orange flower water
¼ teaspoon Cinnamon
1 pack Filo pastry
½ cup Melted ghee
3 cups Sugar
1½ cup Water
3 drops Orange flower water
1 teaspoon Lemon juice




To make the filling: Combine all of the filling ingredients.

To make the baklava: Remove the pastry from the package and unfold to reveal flat sheets. Cut the sheets in half and place the pastry between 2 barely damp tea towels to prevent it from drying out. Take one half sheet of pastry at a time and place it on a workbench.

Brush the pastry sparingly with melted ghee, fold it in half lengthwise and brush again. Place 1 tbsp of the filling at one short edge of the pastry, fold in the sides to enclose the filling and roll up in a finger shape. Repeat with the remaining pastry and filling.

Place the baklava rolls on a greased baking tray and bake in a preheated 350 degree F. oven until they are golden.

To make the syrup: Combine all the ingredients and boil until the mixture has a syrup consistency. To finish: pour the syrup over the cooked rolls and allow to stand until cool.
