1 lb Phyllo dough sheets
3/4 c Unsalted butter melted
1/2 c Chopped pistachio nuts, opt.
NUT FILLING 2 Egg whites
1/2 c Caster sugar
2 c Coarsely ground walnuts
2 c Coarsely ground almonds
1 ts Rose water
ALTAR SYRUP 2 c Granulated sugar
1 1/2 c Water
1 ts Lemon juice
1 ts Orange flower water
1 ts Rose water
Stack 10 sheets phyllo on a flat surface, keeping remainder covered with a dry, then a damp tea towel. Brush top sheet of stack with butter, lift sheet and replace on stack buttered side down. Brush top with butter, lift top two sheets and turn over on stack. Repeat until all 10 sheets are buttered, lifting an e tra sheet each time. Top and bottom of finished stack should remain unbuttered. With kitchen scissors cut buttered stack of phyllo into appro imately 10 cm (4 inches) squares. Stack and cover. Prepare remainder of phyllo.
Depending on size of phyllo sheets, you may have fewer than 10 left at the end. Halve sheets if necessary to give 10 layers. Beat egg whites until stiff and beat sugar in gradually. Fold in nuts and rose water. Butter top of phyllo square and place a tablespoonful of nut mi ture in the centre. Gently squeeze into a lily shape, with four corners of square as petals and filling in centre. Place in a buttered 25 33 cm (10 13 inch) baking dish. Repeat with remaining ingredients, placing finished pastries close together in dish. Bake in moderate oven for 30 minutes, reduce to slow and cook for further 15 minutes. Meanwhile dissolve sugar in water over heat, add lemon juice and orange water and bring to the boil. Boil for 15 minutes, stir in rose water and cool. Spoon cool thick syrup over hot pastries. Leave until cool and sprinkle pistachio nuts in centres of pastries if desired. Note: If you are not used to working with phyllo pastry, then it is advisable to fill and shape the first lot of buttered squares before going onto the nest lot. The butter firms fairly quickly and it could be difficult to shape the pastries if the buttered sheets are left for a time.
