Brie filled baklava


  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • To make the filling, combine the pistachio nuts, walnuts, pecans and cinnamon in a bowl. Set aside until needed.
  • Cut the sheets of phyllo dough in half, lengthwise, creating 20 smaller sheets.
  • Grease a 20x30 cm baking pan with butter and begin setting the bottom crust for the baklava.
  • Spread 10 sheets of phyllo dough in the pan. Add them one at a time and drizzle each sheet with a generous amount of melted butter before adding the next.
  • When all 10 sheets have been added, add 2/3 of the filling and spread evenly over the phyllo.
  • Cover with 5 sheets of phyllo dough, in the same manner as before, drizzling each sheet with melted butter before adding the next.
  • Add the remaining 1/3 of the filling and spread evenly over the phyllo dough.
  • Break up the brie into little pieces with your hands and distribute them over the filling.
  • Cover with another 4 sheets of phyllo dough in the same manner as before, drizzling each sheet with melted butter before adding the next.
  • To finish, add the final sheet of phyllo and carefully turn the edges inward.
  • Drizzle the surface and edges with melted butter.
  • Score the surface diagonally with a small sharp knife to create diamond shaped pieces.
  • Bake for 1 hour, until the phyllo becomes golden and crunchy.
  • When it is ready, remove from oven and immediately prepare the syrup.
  • Place a saucepan over medium heat and add the sugar, honey and water.
  • Let the mixture simmer for 5 minutes, until the sugar dissolves completely.
  • Remove from heat and pour the hot syrup all over the surface of the hot baklava, using a ladle.
  • Sprinkle with remaining pistachio nuts.
  • Serve baklava warm.
