We flatten the pastry balls by the rolling pin to form the very thin layers of the filo pastry. We cut them into tall strands, add the pistachios and twist them together. We garnish the Baklava pieces with Pistachio powder and put them on the baking tray.
And we pour the melted butter on it. Then, we bake it in a hot oven at 160 degrees until the colour is golden, so we remove it from the oven to add some more melted butter and put it back in the oven, and bake it for more than 45 minutes.
The syrup: we boil a mix of 5 glasses of water and 4 glasses of sugar for 15 minutes then we add a few drops of lemon juice and boil it for more than 1-2 minutes. We pour the syrup on the Baklava after removing it from the oven. It will be ready to be served after percolating the syrup into it.
