Baklava Churros

 2 sheets of puff pastry (17.5 ounce package)
 ¼ cup Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 ¼ cup salted pecans
 ⅓ cup salted pistachios
 ½ cup sugar
 1 tbsp cinnamon
 Zest of one orange or lemon
 Silan or honey for drizzling (optional)

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.


Roll puff pastry between two sheets of parchment paper to form a 12-inch square. Cut into 12 long strips. Note: Make sure puff pastry is as cold as possible while making the recipe. Place in fridge as necessary. Repeat with second sheet of puff pastry.


Place pecans and pistachios in a blender, food processor or spice grinder (or use a sharp knife), to create coarse crumbs. Combine nuts with sugar, cinnamon, orange zest and salt.


Brush extra virgin olive oil over puff pastry strips and dip into nut-sugar mixture so strip is fully coated. Twist strip 4 to 6 times.


Place twists onto parchment lined sheet and bake at 400°F for 12 to 15 minutes, until golden brown. While still hot, drizzle honey or silan over twists
