60g pistachios
60g walnuts
60g almonds
1 lemon, zested
50g, plus 3 tablespoons sugar
30g butter, melted
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
2 boxes mini filo pastry shells, 15 shells each
125g water
65ml honey
Special equipment: 2 (12-cup) mini cupcake pans, food processor
1) Preheat oven to 180C/Gas Mark 4.

2) Arrange the pistachios, walnuts, and almonds on a baking sheet and toast in the oven until golden and fragrant, about 8 minutes. Let nuts cool slightly and add to a food processor along with the lemon zest, 3 tablespoons of sugar, butter, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla and pulse to combine.

3) Place mini filo pastry shells in wells of 2 mini cupcake pans. Add 1 teaspoon of the nut mixture into each shell. Bake until filling is hot, about 10 minutes.

4) Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium heat add the water, 50g sugar, and honey and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until reduced and slightly thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Pour 1 teaspoon syrup into each cup and allow it to soak in, then repeat with another teaspoon. Refrigerate at least 5 hours, or overnight.
