Emirates Recipe - Cashew Baklava


  • 150g salted cashew nuts  
  • 173g walnuts  
  • ½ cup refined sugar plus 1 1/3 cups for syrup  
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder  
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder  
  • ¼ tsp powdered allspice  
  • 2/3 cup melted butter  
  • 16 sheets of phyllo dough  
  • 2/3 cup water  
  • 2/3 cup honey 
  • 1 lemon 
  • 2 cloves  


  1. Prepare the filling. Combine the nuts, ½ cup of sugar, cardamom powder, powdered allspice and ½ tsp of cinnamon powder in a food processor. Pulse until the contents are finely chopped.  
  2. Grease a baking pan 13 inches by 9 inches. Layer four sheets of phyllo dough in the pan. Brush each layer with butter. Spread 1/3rd of the nut mixture on the dough layer. Repeat the procedure with 2 more layers. Don’t forget to brush each sheet with butter.  
  3. Cut with a sharp knife into 24 equal pieces. Make diagonally to make diamond shape.  
  4. Bake for about half an hour at 350F until each piece turns golden brown.  
  5. In the meanwhile, start preparing syrup in a large saucepan. Add the remaining sugar to water along with honey, lemon juice and clove. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 10 minutes on low heat. Stir from time to time.  
  6. Once the syrup is ready, pour it over hot baklava pieces.
