Brush the pastry with butter, and sprinkle a quarter of the nut mixture evenly over top.

Place a sheet of pastry on top, brush with butter and top with another quarter of the nut mixture. Repeat twice more.

Top with remaining phyllo sheet, and brush with butter.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
