How To Make Baklava Recipe

via Cook’n Share

Heat your oven to 350 F or 177 C.

Add the walnuts, pistachios, and cinnamon to a food processor or blender. Pulse a few times until chopped up.

Lay the dough out and cut it in half, and cover it with a damp cloth.

Butter the bottom of a nine by thirteen pan and lay two layers of dough into the bottom and dab the butter onto it.

Continue this process until you get eight layers.

Spread some nuts over the top.

Add another 5 layers buttering every two and the top layer. Spread another layer of nuts over the top.

Continue the five layers three more times.

The top layer should be the same as the bottom. In other words, eight layers, buttering every two.

In total, you must have 30 -35 sheets of dough.

Place in the oven for 45 – 50 minutes.

In the meantime, combine the water, sugar, honey, and lemon juice in a saucepan.

Stir it, bring it to a boil, let it cool, and set it aside.

Pour the cooled syrup over the top of the baklava, and let it sit, at room temperature, for about 12 hours.

Slice, serve and enjoy your baklava.
