- Place nuts and spices into a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Transfer into a bowl and stir in 3/4 cup of the syrup.
- Brush 6 sheets of filo pastry with butter and layer one on top of the other to make a stack. Repeat with the remaining sheets to make 2 more stacks. Fold each stack in half so the short edges meet. Lay a stack in the base of the prepared pan.
- Spoon half the nut mixture over the filo base. Cover with another layer of filo. Spread remaining nut mixture and cover with remaining stack of filo. Trim if necessary.
