Ingredients: cup- 200 ml., medium, total time 2 hours, 10 servings

For baklava dough:

  • 1 glass of water milk

  • 1 cup of sunflower oil

  • 3 eggs

  • 1.5 teaspoons of grape vinegar

  • 1 packet of baking powder/ 10 g

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 6 cups flour for baklava

For internal mortar:

  • 3 cups finely ground walnuts

To roll the dough and top:

  • 1 cup of corn starch

  • 250 g of butter

For the sherbet:

  • 5 cups of water

  • 4 cups powdered sugar

  • 4 drops of fresh lemon juice

Preparation:
  1. Put the flour in a deep mixing bowl. Open the middle part like a pool with your fingertips. Add the egg, milk, sunflower oil, baking powder, vinegar, and salt.

  2. Prepare a dough as soft as an earlobe by mixing all the ingredients slowly and adding it to the flour.

  3. Divide the dough that you have kneaded well into thirty equal parts and roll it on a marble worktop. Roll out each dough to the size of a sweet plate on a lightly floured worktop.

  4. After sprinkling the dough with corn starch in between, arrange the dough in groups of 10 on top of each other, then continue to roll them thinly with the help of a rolling pin. Dough that are as thin as possible should reach the size of a tray. The edges should be cut and trimmed to the size of a tray.

  5. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat to grease between the filo layers.

  6. Sprinkle the thinly rolled dough with the help of a rolling pin from the finely ground walnuts and place them on top of each other.

  7. You need to cut the baklava into slices before the cooking process. To do this, divide the baklava into eight equal pieces in a triangle shape. Scratch each triangle horizontally and then traverse it in the opposite direction. In this way, obtain diamond slices in the form of four sides, as shown in the figure.

  8. Distribute half of the melted butter evenly over the baklava. Make sure that it is spread in between the slices. Start baking the baklava in a preheated 180 °C -degree in the oven.

  9. Take the baklava out of the oven for a short time and rub the remaining butter on it. Continue cooking until the top and bottom are evenly browned.

For the sherbet of Baklava-Syrup:

  1. Mix the powdered sugar with water in a deep saucepan and boil for about 25 minutes over medium heat. Remove from the heat 2–3 minutes after adding lemon juice to the boiling syrup.

  2. Keep the hot baklava coming out of the oven at room temperature and cool. Pour the hot syrup on the dessert with the help of a ladle and wait for the sherbet to be drunk. Share the holiday desserts you take on the serving plate with your loved ones.

Buon appetito!
