4 cloves

Juice of 1/2 lemon

🀀 For the frangipane:
120 gms cold butter
50 gms caster sugar
1 egg whisked

🀀 Method:
1/ Syrup: Put everything into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 6 minutes. Set to one side to cool.

2/ Baklava: In a processor, add the nuts, cinnamon and blitz until finely chopped but not turned to dust.

3/ Frangipane: then add the butter, caster sugar and egg and blitz until formed into a paste

4/ Lay out and butter a filo sheet. Then lay the 2nd sheet down and butter that too

5/ Add 2 tbls of frangipane along the bottom and then spread it across the length

6/ Roll it up quickly and then place in your buttered tin, repeat the process until all the filo and frangipane is used, then brush all over with butter

7/ Bake in the oven on 180 for 40 minutes until golden brown. Remove, and immediately pour the cooled syrup over the baklava.

Allow the baklava to soak up the syrup for around 5-6 hours. Decorate with crushed pistachios and edible rose petals. Enjoy! 🀀
