Boil until the liquids evaporate.
Add the olive oil, sugar, cinnamon, clove spice and simmer for 5 minutes.
Let the mixture cool down.

Brush olive oil on each pastry sheet.
Alternate placing the pastry sheets (2 at a time) in your pan with the filling until you’ve used all. (Do not forget to brush on oil on each sheet.)
