How to Make Baklava with Ready-Made Phyllo Dough ?

“Making baklava with ready-made phyllo dough is quite easy. Here is a step-by-step method for making baklava with ready-made phyllo dough:


  • 1 package of ready-made phyllo dough
  • 250-300 grams of butter or vegetable oil
  • 2 cups of finely chopped walnuts or pistachios
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon (optional)
  • For the syrup:
    • 2 cups of water
    • 2 cups of granulated sugar
    • Juice of half a lemon
  1. Prepare the syrup: In a saucepan, combine water and sugar. Once it starts boiling, add the lemon juice. Let the syrup simmer for 10-15 minutes, then remove from heat and let it cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 175°C (350°F) and grease a baking tray with butter or vegetable oil.
  3. Prepare the phyllo dough: Lay out the phyllo dough sheets on a flat surface and cut them to fit the size of the tray. Cover the phyllo dough with a damp cloth to prevent drying.
  4. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on the work surface and brush it with melted butter or vegetable oil. Place another sheet on top and brush it with butter as well. Repeat this process with about 5-6 sheets, sprinkling chopped walnuts or pistachios in between. Brush the top sheet with butter.
  5. Roll up the phyllo dough tightly into a log shape and slice it into pieces about 3-4 fingers thick. Place the sliced baklava pieces in the greased tray.
  6. Repeat the same process until all the phyllo is finished and place all the slices on the tray.
  7. Bake the baklava in the preheated oven until golden brown. The baking time usually ranges from 30 to 40 minutes. Keep an eye on it and adjust the baking time if needed.
  8. Once baked, carefully pour the cooled syrup over the hot baklava, ensuring it is evenly distributed.
  9. Allow the baklava to rest at room temperature for a while, then slice and serve.

Baklava made with ready-made phyllo dough can be easily prepared and results in a delicious treat.”
