  • Add in 2 egg yolks. Mix and toss the dough together until all is well incorporated. The dough will become soft and gentle.

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Butter up an oven-safe pan, 8 X 12 inch ( If it is glass or ceramic, you don’t need to butter it up).
  • Take the dough out of refrigerator and roll it out gently for it to fit into your dish. (Use flour for the dough for it not to stick to your surface). Carefully transfer one rolled out dough into your pan.
  • Take half of the nut mixer and spread it over the dough in the pan.
  • Add another rolled-out dough and spread the rest of the nut mix over the dough. Cover it with the third rolled-out dough.
  • Cut into diamond shapes.
  • Whisk 1 egg yolk and brush over the top of the baklava. Add a nut to each piece.

  • After taking the baklava out of the oven, cool it down completely before trying to take it out from the pan.
