How to make it

  • Butter the inside of the baking dish.
  • Gently place one leaf of dough into the pan, fitting carefully along the bottom of the pan.
  • The leaves are very fragile. so fold to pick them up, and unfold when in place in the pan.
  • Brush with butter-and-oil mixture.
  • Repeat with 9 more sheets.
  • Sprinkle 3 tablespoons of powdered nuts (with optional spice to taste) on tenth leaf.
  • Open two more leaves of dough on top of nut mixture, buttering each in turn.
  • Repeat with the nut mixture and two more leaves until all are used up.
  • As soon as the last two leaves are used, brush the top with butter and oil.
  • With a very sharp knife, score the top of the pastry lightly lengthwise into four, and then draw the knife diagonally to make lozenge-shaped portions.
  • Bake in a 325 degree oven for 90 minutes.
