- Preheat the oven to 170ºC/gas 3-4. Grease an 18cm x 30cm baking tray.
- Melt the butter and set aside.
- Chop the nuts, then mix in a bowl with the brown sugar, cinnamon and 50g of the granulated sugar.
- Whisk the eggs, then stir into the nut mixture with 100g of the melted butter and leave to one side.
- Reheat the remaining butter, so it’s loose enough to brush over the pastry. Remove the filo from the packaging and, working quickly, line the dish with a layer of filo, so it hangs over the edge, then brush with butter.
- Repeat, layering up the pastry and butter until you’ve used all of the filo, making sure there is plenty of overhang with each sheet.
- Mix the nut filling one last time, then pour it into the case.
- Fold in the overhanging pastry to create a ruffled top – it won’t cover the whole pie, but you want to show a little of the filling.
- Bake in the oven for 45 minutes, or until crispy.
- While the pie is cooking, place the remaining sugar in a pan with the honey, lemon juice and 100ml of water. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, or until you have a light syrup.
- Take it off the heat, stir in the orange blossom water, and cool.
- Remove the pie from the oven and drizzle over the honey syrup. Leave it to cool completely.
- Chop the remaining pistachios and sprinkle over. Serve with a good dollop of thick Greek yoghurt on the side, if you like.
