Baklava Rolls

Infused with rose and orange blossom water.

I can't take any credit for this recipe - it is 100% Barefoot Contessa's recipe with no changes made to it whatsoever!


  • 1 pack filo pastry

  • 300g walnuts

  • 100g pistachios

  • 250g butter

  • 3 cups sugar

  • 3.5 cups water

  • ¼ lemon juice

  • 1 tbsp orange blossom/rose water


Make your syrup first: place water and sugar in a man on medium heat. Bring

to a simmer and simmer for 20 mins. Squeeze in the lemon juice and orange

blossom/rose water and simmer for another 5 mins. Set aside to cool.

Grind the walnuts and pistachios.

Melt the butter and skim the white solids.

Take on filo sheet at a time. Sprinkle the nuts on it and roll with an oklava then

bunch up before removing.

Place it into a pan. Repeat for all sheets.

Cover the sheets with the melted butter.

Place in 200-degree oven for 20 mins until golden brown.

Ladle on the cold syrup immediately.

Add ground pistachios for decoration.
