'Lazy' Baklava

These cookies are crispy on the outside and fudgy in the middle. The brown butter really elevates the cookies and enhances the depth of flavour. They are definitely a crowd pleaser!


  • 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 bunch up like a fan.

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 pistachios for decoration.
