Steps

Phyllo cups

  1. Preheat your oven to 150C /320F.
  2. To make the phyllo pastry cups add a sheet of pastry on your workbench and spray it with oil spray, lay another sheet on top. Repeat that with a third sheet. Cut in four. Each one will make one cup. For this recipe you’ll need 8 cups. Bake for 12 minutes until lightly golden.

Filling

  1. Chop the pistachios. Place in a large mixing bowl. Add the lemon juice, cinnamon and butter and mix to coat the nuts. Place in the 8 phyllo cups and place back in the oven for 12 minutes.

Syrup

  1. Add the water, lemon juice and honey into a heatproof bowl and microwave for 2 minutes until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is bubbly. Add 1 tbsp of syrup into each baked phyllo cup and allow to cool before serving.
