Christmas Baklava

The best quick and easy home baklava recipe

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Baking time: 30-40 minutes

* Ingredients:

° 500g phyllo dough

° 2 stick butter (room temperature)

° 3 cups of coarse pistachios (you can use walnuts as well)

° 2 tablespoons of soft pistachio ornaments

° 2 tablespoons of orange blossom water

° 1-2 cups of sugar syrup (for sweetening to taste)

* Method:

Spread a “Pyrex” glass casserole with a little butter and melt the rest of the amount on the gas. Put phyllo chips in the casserole dish (roughly half the amount), and using a brush, brush the butter between the layers. In a small bowl, mix the pistachios with a cup of sugar syrup and orange blossom water and spread a rich layer of pistachios over the dough. Cover with the rest of the foil, using butter between each layer of foil. Once the chips are stacked on top of each other, pour the rest of the butter over the dough and cut the raw baklava using a sharp knife into small diamond shapes (diamonds). Bake at 180 ° C for 30-40 minutes or until the color turns golden. Pour some sugar syrup on top as soon as you remove the tray from the oven, and decorate with soft pistachios,

and enjoy.
