How to make it

  • Syrup
  • Combine sugar and water, Stir until dissolved. Boil over medium heat for 5 minutes. Then add lemon juice, rose water, and blossom water. Boil for 5 more minutes. Remove from heat and cool.
  • Apples layer
  • Peel and slice apples. Melt butter in pot over high heat. Add apples, sugar and cinnamon: cook, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender and juices are evaporated, 15-20 minutes. Cool.
  • Nut mixture
  • Combine all ingredients in small bowl.
  • Preheat oven to 400F. Trim phyllo sheets to 13x9-inch rectangles; cover with towel. Brush 13x9-inch metal baking pan with butter. Place 1 phyllo sheet in pan and brush with some of the melted butter(keep remaining phyllo covered). Layer 5 more phyllo sheets on top, brushing each with butter. Spread 2 cups nut mixture on top and repeat layering with 6 more phyllo sheets and butter. Spread apple mixture on top and repeat layering with 6 more phyllo sheets and butter. Sprinkle remaining nut mixture on top; sprinke with bread crumbs and layer with the 6 remaining phyllo sheets and butter.
  • With sharp knife, cut lengthwise through pastry and filling into 11/2 inch wide strips, then cut diagonally at 2 inch intervals to make diamonds. Bake 35-40 minutes or until golden. Drizzle with desired amount of syrup, when you take it out of the oven. You don't have to use all of the syrup.
