fraction of the fat you would normally use, thanks to reduced fats,
sugar, and nuts. The results will fool anyone. 1. Combine pistacho
nuts, sugar, cinnamon and rose water in small bowl. Using half of
filo sheets (cover remaining with plastic wrap to prevent from drying
out), place 3 sheets in bottom of lightly greased 13x9" baking sheet.
Brush with some of margarine. Sprinkle evenly with nut mixture. Place
remaining sheets over nut filling, brushing after every third sheet
and top sheet. 2. Cut baklava at 1-1/2" intervals diagonally to form
pattern of about 35 diamond shapes. Bake at 400'F. 25 minutes or
until golden. Place on wire rack to cool. Drizzle Rose Water Syrup
evenly over top and allow to soak several hours. Stud each
diamond-shape with whole clove.
