  • For the intermediate ingredients of baklava, you can use ground walnuts, almond powder, pistachio powder, or a combination of all of them as you wish.
  • Make sure the syrup is cold, and the baklava is warm. If both are warm, the baklava will be doughy; if they are cold, they will not be absorbed.
