Recipe of the day: Super rich date and walnut pastry | Lifestyle

It seems a little early for the orange harvest, but those extremely high temperatures there may well cause different conditions than, for example, in Spain. In any case, this pastry, with the orange, seemed so beautiful to me because it also gives you a little bit of sunshine.

Boil the dates in the orange juice until it is completely absorbed. Then add the grater, walnuts and cinnamon powder. Grease a baking pan with butter, put a phyllo dough on it, spread with butter, put another layer on top, then a layer of filling, then another layer of phyllo dough, another layer of filling and finish with a double layer of phyllo dough. Always plenty of butter in between. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Set the oven to 180 ° C and bake for 30 minutes until golden brown, then turn the oven back to 150 ° C and let it rest for another half hour. Boil honey, water and lemon juice together. Let cool and pour over the warm pastry. Then let it cool down for another hour. Your children, or grandchildren, will at least have the best autumn holiday ever with it.

• juice and zest of 1 orange
