Thermomix Baklava

For the baklava:
375g filo pastry
150g almonds
180g walnuts
80g pistachios
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 tsp ground cloves
250g butter
For the syrup:
180g water
180g sugar
80g honey
Juice of 1 lemon

Lightly grease a 20x30cm slice pan and set the oven to 180°C.
Defrost the filo pastry. When thawed roll out the filo pastry and slice in half so that the sheets will fit in the. Cover with a damp tea towel or cheese cloth to keep it from drying out.
Place the almonds, walnuts, pistachios and spices in the TM bowl and chop at Speed 5 for 15 seconds. Remove from the TM bowl and set aside.
Place the butter in the TM bowl and melt at 90°C Speed 3 for 90 seconds.
Place a sheet of filo pastry in the pan. Using a pastry brush, light cover with melted butter. Repeat 7 more times until it is 8 sheets thick, each sheet being brushed with melted butter.
Spoon on a thin layer of the nut mixture. Cover with three more sheets of filo, brushing each one with butter.
Continue to repeat the nut mixture and three buttered sheets of filo until the nut mixture is all used up. The top layer should be 8 filo sheets thick, each sheet brushed with butter. Do not worry if the sheets crinkle up a bit.
Cut into 24 equal sized squares or diamonds using a sharp knife.
Bake at 180°C for 30-35 minutes or until lightly golden brown, and edges appear slightly crisp.
While baking, make the syrup. Place all syrup ingredients in the TM bowl. Cook at 100°C Speed 3 for 15 minutes with the MC angled to allow the steam to escape.
Pour the syrup over the cooked Baklava and let cool for at least 4 hours.
Keeps for 4-5 days.
