Walnut, Pistachio Cashew Nut Baklava


1 box phyllo pastry sheets

1 lb mixed nuts. I used walnuts, cashews & pistachios. Slightly crushed

3 sticks of butter

3 tablespoons cinnamon powder

1 cup honey

3 teaspoons orange blossom water

Juice of 1 orange

2 cups of sugar

2 cups of water


Melt all 3 sticks of butter. Get your baking dish ready by buttering the bottom. Layer your phyllo pastry sheets. Make sure to generously brush each sheet with butter. Layer about 8-10 sheets. Add your nut mixture. Now layer 8-10 sheets of phyllo pastry making sure you butter each sheet cut in diamond shapes and bale at 350 till medium golden brown. While it’s baking heat 2 cups of sugar and 2 cups of water, the honey, orange blossom water and orange juice boil it till it becomes a sticky syrup. Once the baklava is done baking. Pour the syrup over it and let it cool and top with crushed pistachios. Take a picture and don’t forget to tag me.
