So, once our Baklava has been cooking for 15 minutes and it’s almost done, you want to start preparing your syrup. So, we’re going to turn on our stove top and our syrup is really easy. All you need is one cup of water, one cup of granulated sugar and a little bit of lemon juice. Now, the lemon juice is essential because it keeps the sugar from forming that stickiness. It gives it a really nice consistency but you don’t want too much. Just a splash and you want to bring this to a boil and yes it’s boiling so we could turn it off now and let that settle. And I think I our Baklava is just about done. So, I will take it out of the oven. This is perfect. You want it just that perfect golden brown color. We don’t want to cook too much. Perfect! It smells great. You could smell the aroma of the sugar and the cinnamon.
Now, we’re just going to wait for our syrup to cool down a little bit and then we’re going to pour it over and let it gradually soak in. Okay, there’s no need to put this is the refrigerator. Baklava is always best at room temperature. When you put them in the refrigerator, it tends to get a little soggy. So, that’s just the little trick that I learned and just spoon it over. You don’t need to use all the syrup. Some people like it very syrupy; some people not too much. And just keep spooning it over until you think it’s just about enough and you’re going to give this about an hour for the syrup to sink in.
