  1. Spread the sesame seeds on a baking sheet and roast for 10 minutes at 160°C.
  2. Then, while they are still hot, grind them in a food processor. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the walnuts, breadcrumbs, sugar and spices to make the filling.
  3. Lay three sheets of filo in a medium baking tray and sprinkle over some of the filling, continuing with alternate layers of filo and filling until you have three sheets of filo left to top the pie with.
  4. Cut the pie into pieces with a sharp knife and stick a clove in each piece.
  5. In a saucepan, heat the olive oil until it very hot and pour over the pie, making sure you cover the whole surface. Bake for 60 minutes at 170°C.
  6. While the pie is baking, boil all the ingredients for the syrup for 5 minutes and pour it over the pie when it comes out of the oven.
  7. Leave the pie for some hours so it can soak up the syrup, and serve.
You can also add honey to the syrup.
