To prepare Baklawas:
Grease a 40cm x 30cm oven tray, place 1 sheet of filo pastry, brush with butter and repeat the same with 5 more sheets.
Carefully spoon the filling all over the pastry.
Place 1 sheet of filo pastry to cover the filling, brush with butter and sprinkle with some pine seeds mixture.
Top with another sheet. Sprinkle with little pine seeds mixture and repeat the same with the remaining sheets.
Brush the surface with melted butter, then cut the pastry and filling as parallel lines to get diamond shaped pieces.
Bake in a 185°C preheated hot oven for about 25-30 minutes or until light golden color.
Pour the cold syrup over the baklawa as soon as it comes out of the oven.
