We’re celebrating Eid with something light, sweet, nutty, and easy! Who would have thought that anything involving phyllo dough could be so simple, but Iman made it possible with the help of our super nonstick Oven Pan. Eid Mubarak, everyone!
1 16 oz. package phyllo dough
For the filling2 c. chopped walnuts
1/4 c. rose water simple syrup
1 1/2 c. melted clarified butter
1 1/2 c. rose water simple syrup
1/4 c. crushed pistachios
For the simple syrup:2 c. sugar
1 c. water
1 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. rose water
1 tsp. orange blossom water
Combine sugar, water, and lemon juice over high heat until boiling. Mix and let simmer for 7 minutes. Turn off heat and add the rose water and orange blossom water.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Melt the clarified butter and set aside.
Using a food processor, finely chop your walnuts. Add a 1/4 cup of the cooled syrup to the walnuts and mix to combine.
Unroll the phyllo and remove two sheets.
Add a thin line of the walnut mixture to the phyllo dough, leaving about 2 inches on the bottom. Roll it up tightly and set on your Our Place baking tray.
Continue doing this until you finish the phyllo dough and walnut mixture.
Evenly pour the melted butter all over the baklawa.
Bake at 375°F for about 25 – 30 minutes until crispy and golden brown. Top with crushed pistachios and the cooled simpIe syrup. Slice and serve!
