Flower shaped baklava with peaches and bourbon glaze.
- 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 2. Spray eight 1-cup muffin tins with cooking spray. 3. Cut each sheet of filo pastry into 8 squares. 4. Line each of the 8 muffin tin cups with 3 squares of filo pastry, brushing butter in between each layer and on the top, overlapping the sheets at different angles. 5. Combine the almonds, cinnamon, and 1/4 cup brown sugar in a small bowl; sprinkle over each of the 8 pastry cups. 6. Top each one with the 3 more squares of pastry, with butter in between each layer and continue to overlap the sheets at different angles. 7. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until golden.
- 8. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, dissolve the remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar in the orange juice; bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer. 9. Add the peaches to the syrup and stir gently to coat them; simmer for 2 or 3 minutes. 10. Remove the pastry "flowers" from the muffin tins, and with a slotted spoon, remove the peaches from the syrup and distribute evenly in the "flowers". 11. Drizzle glaze over each flower.
- To Prepare Bourbon Glaze: Place all ingredients into a mixer and mix well. Heat mixture in microwave for about 15 seconds to thin.
