DIRECTIONS

  • Combine almonds, walnuts, bread crumbs, cinnamon, orange rind, sugar and brandy. Mix well.
  • Separate dough in parts, so that each part has two "phylla" as they're called.Butter up the first two.
  • Spread on top of them a thin layer from the filling, leaving 2 cm from the edges. Fold edges and roll it tightly. Do the same thing with the rest "phylla".
  • Curve the baklava rolls with a sharp knife, almost half-way through. Do not cut them all the way! Each cut should be about 4-5 cm from the other.
  • Brush the baklava rolls with plenty of butter and place them in buttered pan.
  • Bake for 30-40 mins at 180 C (355 F).
  • Meanwhile prepare syrup mixing and boiling all ingredients, until its thickness compares to that of olive oil.
  • Let the syrup cool down.
  • when baklava rolls seem golden brown, you take them out and cut out the pieces you had previously curved. Put it back in the hot oven for 5 minutes.
  • Take the rolls out and immediately pour the cooled syrup over them. Let it cool before serving.
