This is the ultimate baklava recipe, for baklava lovers. It is a great alternative for people who don't like walnuts or that are allergic to it. Turkish Baklava is normally prepared in large pans and rolled by hand, but here we have the phyllo dough sold in the markets, for those who can not buy it in the markets, you can also roll in at home. Starting with the syrup, transfer 1 ½ cups of water into a pot Add sugar When it boils, adds the lemon juice, and turn off the heat. The syrup is ready. Melt the butter in a small pan add the vegetable oil Cut the phyllo according to the size of your try Grease the tray Brush some oil between every 2 layers of phyllo When you are done placing half of the phyllo, spread a layer of minced pistachio Place rest of the phyllo Once you are done, slice your baklava into rectangles Pour the leftover oil after you slice the baklava (try not to use the bubbly part, which burns quickly) On 180C(360F) pre-heated oven, bake for around 25 to 30 minutes When both tray and the syrup warm down, pour the syrup on the baklava.
