Baklava (Bagh-lava) Recipe
Mix together the oil, egg yolks, baking powder and milk. Once everything is combined, slowly incorporate the flour. Place the dough in a bag and let it sit in a cool place for several hours. Mix together the ground almonds with the confectioners sugar and cardamom powder. Divide the dough into several pieces, making small balls of each piece. Lay a ball of dough on a floured surface and roll it out until it’s as thin as possible. Spread a small amount of almond paste on top of the dough and dot with the rosewater. Repeat with the remaining pieces of dough. Place in a 300 degree oven. In a small saucepan bring together the white sugar, ½ hot water and the remaining rosewater. Bring the mixture to a boil and then turn down the burner to low. Remove the dough from the oven after 35-40 minutes and let cool. Brush the top of the baked dough with the rosewater mixture every few minutes and serve.
