Roast the ground nuts and add sugar and rose water, mix together to make a paste

Cover the oven tray with oil or butter or a mixture of both

But half of the filo sheet in the tray and leave the other half on the side

Cover each sheet with oil or butter or a mixture of both

When you finish all the sheets, put the nuts mix in the middle

Then fold the other half of the filo sheets on the top, adding oil and butter on each sheet

Cut the baklava into diamond shapes before putting in the oven

Put in the oven until it turns golden in colour.

Add the sugar syrup when it is still hot.

Let it cool down and enjoy!
