Ingredients And Procedures
Ingredients
1/2poundpistachio nuts, shelled, ground
3tablespoonsugar
3/4teaspooncinnamon, ground
1 1/2tablespoonrose water
1/2poundfilo dough
1/2cupmargarine, low-calorie, melted
1rose water syrup
1cloves, whole, optional

Directions:

This rich-tasting baklava contains half the amount of sugar and a fraction of the fat you would normally use, thanks to reduced fats, sugar, and nuts. The results will fool anyone.

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 inch 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.

Cut baklava at 1 1/2 inch intervals diagonally to form pattern of about 35 diamond shapes. Bake at 400 degrees F for 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.
