  • 1 pound Phyllo Pastry Sheets (12 sheets)
  • ½ pound unsalted Butter (melted)

    For the Filling:
  • 1 pound Walnuts (coarsely ground)
  • ½ pound Almonds (coarsely ground)
  • ½ cup Sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground Cinnamon

    For the Syrup:
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1½ cups Sugar
  • 10 whole Cloves
  • ½ Lemon (juiced)
How to make Baklava Rolls:
  • Preheat oven to 325 degree F.
  • Mix walnuts, almonds, sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Brush the bottom and sides of a 9x12 rectangular pan with butter using a pastry brush.
  • Layer six phyllo sheets, each brushed with melted butter.
  • Spread half of the nut mixture evenly over the sheets. Pat it with a spatula to flatten.
  • Repeat the same for the remaining sheets and mixture and continue layering.
  • Before baking, score the top layer of phyllo to enable easy cutting of the pieces later.
  • Bake for about 45 minutes, until the phyllo turns into a rich golden color.
  • Meanwhile, combine water and sugar in a pot.
  • Add cloves and simmer over medium-high heat till you get a thick syrup.
  • Remove from heat and add lemon juice. Stir.
  • Cut the baked mixture into small rolls and serve warm with slightly cool syrup.
