    thank you very much for sharing the recipe… if the oil is 1/2 cup then
    from the picture the milk looks like 2 cups but your recipe says 1 cup of
    milk, could you please confirm the amount of milk??? thank you it looks
    delicious, cant wait to make it, will definitely tell you how it came out
    when I do make it
    anymore English recipes of yours, I love your techniques… I watched some
    other videos in Turkish they look very good but unfortunately I don’t
    understand any… :-(

    Hi, and thank you so much for the recipe. I absolutely love baklava and
    when we travel to turkey its my favorite dessert. I will try and make this
    for christmas. I have always thought you had to butter each layer of
    filodough, but in this movie I can se that in a real turkish baklava you
    don’t have to. I hope it will be easy and successfull to make it, looks
    like a lot of work and a risk of the layers to stick together. But as
    always it looks so easy when you do it in the video=)

    I tried making baklava many years ago but rolled each sheet individually
    and took me about 4 hours!!! I love baklava, my family is Hungarian and
    they have a recipe for baklava as well… however when my great grandmother
    would roll the dough she used her fingers and not a rolling pin! I am NOT
    that patient lol! I’m glad you showed us the layering technique because it
    will cut my time drastically! I will now try this for our Thanksgiving
    holiday thank you!

    Thank you very much for this well-explained baklava recipie! I have a
    question about the syrup temperature, should it be colder or hotter than
    the baklava temperature? 

  13. David Frantz says:

    thank you for this incredible recipe, I really appreciate it! 

  14. angelyareem says:

    Hiii
    Can I use this dough for salty recipes such as cheese borek?
    Thx

  15. Junipa Contento says:

    Teşekkürler! Çok lezzetli ve güzel görünüyor! I am very excited to see your
    technique for making the phyllo dough. WOW! SUPER!
    I have seen a recipe that added honey with the sugar syrup, included pecans
    walnuts, and pistachios in one mix, and used spices such as cinnamon,
    cardamom, and cloves. This leaves me with a question: Is there an official
    authentic “Türk” recipe or does this recipe vary from city to city ve ev ev?
    Sorry mixed. I am learning Turkish yavaş yavaş! Thank you for your reply
    and for your delicious recipes, Ben yapmak için öğrenmek istiyorum! 🙂

  17. rustygrtom says:

    Can you please tell me what kind of flour do you use? And at the end when
    you add the syrup is it cold or hot? Thank you very much!

  18. Mehreen Mahi says:

    Can i use readymade roll/samosa sheet ??

  19. z1685 says:

    I noticed that you don’t spread melted butter over EACH layer of the thin
    sheeted doughs as you place them in the tray. Instead you pour over at the
    end. Does it make any difference?
