Baklava – So Good, It’s Nuts!

Assuming you lot haven’t used upwards all your homemade filo dough already, equally promised, here’s my method for edifice what I intend is a beautiful baklava. Like lasagna, at that spot are equally many versions of this, equally at that spot are cooks who brand it, but regardless of the exact ingredients, or specific release of layers, the technique is the same. 

I tend to taste a generous ratio betwixt nuts in addition to pastry, equally that makes me experience a piffling chip ameliorate close the copious amounts of saccharide inward this, but higher upwards in addition to beyond that, I intend this approach produces the best texture. As I mentioned inward the video, you lot tin role equally many layers of filo equally you lot want, but locomote careful, since likewise many may non gear upwards through, in addition to the alone means to mess this upwards is to undercook the dough. The piece of job past times in addition to bottom layers ask to dry out out, in addition to thoroughly crisp up, otherwise, in 1 lawsuit the syrup gets ladled over, you’ll accept a soggy mess.

I would outset peeking at it afterward close 45 minutes, but it’s belike going to ask closer to an hour, or fifty-fifty more, depending on how much “stuff” you lot used. Once done, in addition to finished amongst the syrup, you lot ask to permit this cool downward to room temp, which is incredibly difficult to do. But, your patience volition locomote rewarded amongst 1 of the most delicious things known to man. I actually hope you lot hand this a crusade soon. Enjoy!
